Hillsdale College Parents Weekend on October 9, 2021.

Parents Association


The purpose of the Association is to assist Hillsdale College in the service and advancement of its mission.

The Association advances these ends by promoting them and soliciting support for them among parents. Through involvement in College projects and functions, fundraising and student recruitment, and effective communication with parents and others, the Association serves students by helping the College enrich students’ lives and ennoble their humanity.
