The CU Parents Association (CUPA) serves as a conduit for parents to find meaningful and enjoyable opportunities to become a vital part of the CU-Boulder family. Programming and outreach by CUPA members includes:
Help us recognize outstanding contributions on campus! Nominate outstanding faculty, staff and students for our Marinus Smith Award or CU Proud Award.
Stay in touch with CU-Boulder after your student graduates. Join the Alumni Association as a friend of CU and enjoy lifetime membership benefits and a connection to the university.
The Parent Fund is one of many meaningful ways for parents to promote the success of students through a variety of programs and initiatives that enrich the CU-Boulder student experience.
Volunteer to recruit new students! CUPA members support the Office of Admissions by witing notes or making calls to incoming students and volunteering for events or college fairs.
Summer Send-Offs are hosted by Buff families across the country and are a great opportunity to meet other new students, their parents, and alumni before fall classes begin.
Join other parents to cheer on the CU Buffaloes at one of our Buff Parent Roundups. Each year, we host several of these fun get-togethers both at home in Boulder and on the road!
