Members of the Parents Advancement Council at the Move-in Reception.

The Parents Advancement Council is a volunteer group focused on helping coordinate efforts in support of the Parents Fund and other undergraduate student programs at Ohio State. The Council provides leadership support of the Parents Fund while helping advance efforts to increase participation and engagement of the parent and family population.

While members of the Parents Advancement Council provide leadership and guidance in our fundraising efforts, they also receive many benefits. The Council meets twice a year with university leadership to hear, first hand, timely news and information about Ohio State. Additionally, all President’s Club benefits are offered to members of the Council, including the opportunity to purchase football tickets to all home football games.  
Most importantly though, as a member of the Parents Advancement Council, you play a vital role in the comprehensive educational opportunities to the entire undergraduate student population. The need for private support has never been greater and our Buckeye parents are stepping up to the challenge.
