Georgia Tech Parents Program

Welcome to the Georgia Tech Family! This Georgia Tech Parent & Family Guide was created with you in mind. We know it is challenging to be the parent or family member of a college student today, so this publication is focused on providing you with resources to help you support your student to make the most of their experience during their time here at Georgia Tech.

The goal of the Parents Program — which includes all family members of Georgia Tech students — is to support student success. The Parents Program facilitates two-way communication between parents and the Institute, hosts events such as Family Weekend and Sibs Day, and provides opportunities for parents and families to get involved.

The Parents Program views the relationship we have with our students’ parents and families as a partnership —
a partnership created to help students be successful. Our motto is “when parents are informed, students benefit.” We can help you navigate Georgia Tech, assist you and your student with any questions or concerns you may have, and truly make you feel part of the Yellow Jacket Family.

I look forward to meeting you! Please email us if you have any questions or need assistance.

With Yellow Jacket Pride,

Laci Weeden

Director, Parents Program

Good communication with parents is vital to providing the highest quality student experience at Georgia Tech. The Parents Program serves as a communication link between parents of students and the Institute.

Parents Advisory Board

The Parents Advisory Board focuses on providing feedback to the Division of Student Affairs, encouraging interaction between parents and the Institute, supporting parent and student programming and championing special projects.

Parent Volunteering

Georgia Tech offers many opportunities for parents of Tech students to be actively involved on and off campus through volunteering. Parent volunteers are valuable in interacting with parents of prospective students by offering advice and support. Volunteer opportunities are announced in each edition of ParentNews and are posted regularly on the Parents Program website.

Parents Fund

The Division of Student Affairs strives to create an environment for your student that promotes academic excellence and a foundation for success in life. As a parent of a Georgia Tech student, you can help fulfill this mission with a gift to the Parents Fund for Student Life & Leadership. Gifts to the Parents Fund, regardless of the amount, impact the life of your student each and every day by providing funds for enrichment programs that enhance not only their health and safety but also their intellectual, social and personal growth.
