We believe parent support and participation translates to active and engaged students. Parental sessions will:
- Provide workshops and training materials for parents on how to improve their child’s study skills or learning in various academic subjects.
- Engage families in opportunities to work with their children in setting their academic, college and career goals.
- Provide interaction with community partners, MCW staff, faculty, and students to share resources for parents at orientation.
