Room:

Description:
This session will provide a foundation for the positive impact of parent and family member involvement in a student's CSU experience. Participants will learn the history of the Parent and Family Programs Office at CSU. Presenters will share program philosophy, challenge commonly used stereotypes of parent/family behavior, and draw from theory that supports programs and strategies for working with parent and family members. These strategies will focus on the positive impact a parent and family member can make in a student's life at CSU, how the CSU community can support a positive parent/family relationship (one that places the parent/family member in the role of supporter), and how the Parent and Family Programs Office can assist other staff with difficult interactions from parent and family members. In addition to strategies for working with this audience, participants will explore generational differences (Millennial to Generation Z) as it relates to student relationships with parents and/or family members. After the presentation participants should be able to identify the positive role parents and families can play in a student's time at CSU, should be able to identify the Parent & Family Programs Office and what role the office can play in supporting the CSU community, and they should be able to identify strategies for effectively communicating with parent and family members.
Goals and Target Audience:
Any member of the CSU community that interacts with parents and families of students. This could be those individuals that receive phone calls, emails, or any form of contact directly with parents and families, or those who collaborate with the Parent and Family Programs Office. Additionally, this presentation could be valuable to those that hope to perform outreach to parents and families of CSU students, or hope to work in a field that will require significant contact with parents and families.
