Helping parents connect

College is a critical step in the personal journey from childhood to adulthood—for our students and for their parents. We know how important it is for parents to know that their children are being nurtured and cared for and receiving the education and career training that will help them fulfill their dreams.


The Mount Ida Parent Council was created to help parents be part of their child’s experience—and realize that they, too, are vital members of our college community. Through the council, parents are able to connect with other parents, alumni, students, staff, faculty and administrators. Parents’ Council members gather for events; advise Mount Ida leaders on important 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.

Parents’ Council Leadership Team

The Parents’ Council Leadership Team includes parents of current and former students. Team members are recruited based upon their ability and willingness to serve as ambassadors of Mount Ida College and their interest in developing resources that support the Mount Ida experience for our students.

Responsibilities include helping develop strategies and programs by attending two meetings in the fall during Homecoming and Family Weekend and during our spring Admissions open house.
