Meet the Parent Council

Did you know that there is a special group of parents who serve the College by serving other Wheaton parents?

The Parent Council is a group of parents who help with the hospitality of parent events during Orientation and Family Weekend and serve as a resource to the College on issues unique to current parents. Most importantly, the Parent Council is on hand to serve as a resource to you.  Email us at Parents@wheaton.edu if you have questions and would like to get in touch with any members of the Parent Council, or connect directly through the links provided on their profile.
