Mount Family Association

President Thomas Powell with his wife, Irene Powell, Mount Family Association Coordinator

The Mount Family Association is dedicated to meeting the needs of parents and family members of current students. Our promise is to provide information, access and opportunities for involvement. We know your goal is our goal — a graduate equipped with the benefits of an excellent liberal arts education, infused with strong values and deep faith.

Active and knowledgeable parents enhance their own student’s experience and personal success, and share in the tradition of excellence and distinction at the Mount.

Our newsletters, mailed twice a year, provide highlights and profiles, insight and information. Our electronic Mount Family Prayer Memos keep you connected spiritually with our campus community. Our new student June Orientation program and annual Family Fest in the Fall offer ample opportunities for meeting, greeting and networking with each other, with our faculty and administrators, and with other wonderful Mount students.

Take some time to become familiar with this website; it is a primary resource for helpful information. Please know that you are welcome on campus anytime for liturgies or lectures, performances or athletic events. You don’t need an excuse to visit. You are family.

Along with my husband, President Thomas Powell, I welcome you to the Mount St. Mary’s University community. Please contact me directly with suggestions, questions and concerns. I value your input and look forward to seeing you on campus very soon!
