Helping parents and families connect
Our top institutional priority is your student as we promote academic success and personal growth, beginning with the welcoming of the incoming class at Convocation and culminating with the celebration of degree completion at Commencement. The Office of Advancement collaborates with families who wish to be actively engaged in providing an enriched experience for students through the investment of their time and resources.
Because of their breadth of professional experience, personal connections and desire to support the student experience at Mount Ida, families have been instrumental in our continued institutional growth and transformation. The programs offered by our office have facilitated successful partnerships with parents of current students and alumni to provide networking and professional opportunities for our students, and support to the College.
We ask that each Ida Family consider making a meaningful annual gift to the Mount Ida College Fund. By giving, you are sending a powerful message that Ida Families believe this institution is preparing each of our students for a life of success and significance. Gifts at all levels enable the College to continue providing more than $22 million dollars in scholarship support for students who may not otherwise be able to experience the innovative academic environment and career-focused learning opportunities that a Mount Ida College education offers.
We are grateful that you and your student are a part of the Mount Ida College family. Thank you for all you do to support the College so that our students can fulfill their dreams.
The Mount Ida Parents and Family Council was created to help families be part of their child’s experience – and realize that they, too, are vital members of our college community. Through the Council, family members are able to connect with other families, alumni, students, staff, faculty, and administrators. Parents and Family Council members gather for events, offer their insight and an important parent perspective to Mount Ida leaders on college-related issues, contribute their support, inspire and mentor students and alumni, and serve as Mount Ida ambassadors and hosts. Through these connections, the Mount Ida experience is enhanced for the whole family.
The Parents and Family Council meets in-person as a group two times each year on campus. These group meetings occur during our annual Family Weekend/Family Day activities so that parents and families, regardless of their location, can participate in this important group. The Council also participates in conference calls throughout the year to discuss various events and plans to engage others in the Mount Ida College community. All parents and family members are welcome to become members of this group.
