It takes a village
As parents you want the best undergraduate experience for your daughters and sons. At Quinnipiac University, our faculty and staff work with you to put your sons and daughters — our students — above all else, bringing them the fulfilling and valuable college experience they deserve.
Your daughter or son isn’t the only one joining our community. As the parent of a student, you’re automatically part of the Quinnipiac Parents Association. We’ll keep you in the loop about what’s happening on campus — plus, you’ll get Quinnipiac Magazine, invitations to Parents & Family Weekend, and special events on campus and in your area.
Parents can choose to take an active role in student outcomes as part of the Quinnipiac Parents Council. Whether you’re helping students with career development or making leadership gifts, you’ll be supporting your student’s education like never before.
Parents Council members further invest in the student experience with their gifts to the Quinnipiac Parents Fund. The Parents Fund supports academic and student life programs and activities for all undergraduates, providing both expansion and balance to Quinnipiac’s comprehensive educational programming.

"When our daughter, Alex, decided to attend Quinnipiac, we wanted to be involved. The Parents Council allows us to have an impact on important issues. We are thrilled with Alex's college experience. Having professors who guide and nurture her entrepreneurial spirit has been a major factor in her success and achievements."Andy and Pam Acquarulo P'20Parents Council Chair

Resources for Parents
Want to send a care package, make holiday plans, check up on the dean’s list or put a little something extra in your student’s QCard account? Our collected Parent Resources will help you connect and grow comfortable with the Quinnipiac community during your student’s years here.
Quinnipiac Parents Fund
There are lots of ways to support your student’s success. One of the simplest — and most effective — is to make a leadership contribution to Quinnipiac. Your generous support helps us provide high-impact educational and developmental programs to current students. Every dollar invested goes to continuing our mission to help students become well-prepared professionals. Show your support — give today.
Our mission is to provide our students with a meaningful education in a student-oriented environment. And we can’t succeed without your help.
The Quinnipiac Parents Fund directly supports the university’s educational initiatives and developmental programs. No matter what you choose to give, your gift makes an immediate impact on your student’s education today — and the professionals they’ll become tomorrow.
Parents who give an annual, tax-deductible gift of $1,000 or more automatically become members of the President’s Council. Members are recognized for their generosity in the university annual report, and at special events throughout the year.
