Helping parents connect

College is a critical step in the personal journey from childhood to adulthood—for our students and for their families. We know how important it is for family members 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.

Mustang parents welcome!

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 Families 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.
