What is Parent University?

Parent University is a forum to bring together parents and caregivers to learn from experts and each other. Through classes and events that are fun, interactive, and informative we’ll focus on trending topics important to families. We'll learn about such topics as cultivating a growth mindset – how to help kids succeed in school and life; explore how to use art to discuss sensitive topics with our children; and discuss how to raise healthy and resilient girls – and also healthy and resilient boys.

Parent U is designed to help parents and caregivers prepare and empower their children to succeed in school and in our diverse and ever-changing world. Childcare and refreshments will be provided and interpretation services will be available upon request at all of our classes.

There are no tests, grades, or obligations at Parent University--Feel free to attend as many or as few classes as you're interested in. Take a look at some of our upcoming offerings below, and we hope to see you there!
