Stay Involved and Informed

Since 1988, the UCR Parents Association has helped parents stay informed about their students’ undergraduate experiences and provided opportunities for them to get involved on campus.

Your free membership entitles you to:

  • Attend quarterly meetings, where you’ll hear from administrators, staff and faculty about what’s happening on campus.
  • VIP invitations to special campus events.
  • Volunteer opportunities at campus activities, such as orientation and commencement.
  • The opportunity to earn points, which you can use to get special seating at campus events.

To sign up for your free membership, or find out about volunteer opportunities, e-mail or call:

The Parents Association’s quarterly meetings feature presentations from some of our most prominent administrators, faculty and staff members. Find out about our upcoming meetings.

Parent of the Year Award

The UCR Parents Association invites students to nominate a parent or guardian who has been an inspiration to them or others. Learn more about the nomination process and submission deadlines.

Earn Points

For every quarterly meeting you attend and campus event you volunteer at, we'll award you "Participation Points." Earn enough and you'll be awarded the coveted "Chancellor's Reserved Seating" section at Commencement!
