Parents

Parents make a difference
at Albion College.

They volunteer, giving their time and
resources. They mentor, providing invaluable
advice and experiential learning opportunities.
Most of all, they are a vital part of the Albion
family, impacting the entire student body.

Parent Leadership Council

The Parent Leadership Council brings together parents who believe in Albion's mission: to prepare students to translate critical thought into action. Members of the Parent Leadership Council help inform fellow parents of the importance of supporting Albion College.

Through special recognition and unique opportunities, the Parent Leadership Council provides this dedicated community of parent donors an active role in the College while their children study here. Joining the Parent Leadership Council offers members the opportunity to reach out to fellow parents and students through regional parent receptions, career networking, and fundraising for expanded services that help students succeed.

Parent Leadership Council members choose to support the College with annual leadership-level gifts. For more information about the Parent Leadership Council or to make a gift, contact Maria Carr, Associate Director of Annual Giving and Parent Engagement at   or 517/629-0410.
