Parent and Family Engagement

About the Office of Parent and Family Engagement

As a parent or relative of a Mountie, you may find that you have questions about your student's experience, the campus, or where you can find important information and resources.

The Office of Parent and Family Engagement was designed with you in mind. We believe that family plays an important role in the success of each of our students and we want to be there for you as you support their climb.

Parent Participation Challenge

MSMU parent and studentThis friendly competition establishes a tradition of philanthropy among the parents and families of current Mount students. As with every competition, participation is the key. YOUR participation! Every gift counts regardless of its size – whether it is $25 or $10,000!

Your gift to the Parent Fund, Athletics, Academic Excellence or any of our outstanding programs not only helps sustain the Mount, but also helps it to thrive!
