Parents and family members play a vital role in the academic and social success of UNCG students. To facilitate effective partnerships with parents and family members, The Office of New Student & Spartan Family Programs distributes Family Connections, a monthly e-newsletter, to Spartan family members who have joined the UNCG Parent Family Association (PFA). Family Connections provides a valuable opportunity for more than 4,000 PFA members to learn about the programs and resources that are available to families and their students within the university community. The newsletter is sent via email through the PFA listserv during the first week of each month to inform parents and family members of upcoming events, resources and deadlines. Additionally, the newsletter includes a spotlight series that showcases the contributions of students and faculty members from the UNCG community. If your office or department will be hosting an event, providing services, or would like to submit a spotlight article for inclusion in Family Connections, please contact Erin Knaul at email@example.com for details and article submission guidelines. All articles are due five business days prior to the end of the month in order to be included in the following month’s issue.
If you would like to receive Family Connections, please email Erin Knaul at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to subscribe to the newsletter.
