The board is an active group of parent volunteers who meet on campus regularly during the academic year and is very active in the facilitation of Parents Association programs such as Family Weekend, increasing participation in the Parent Fund, grant recipient selection, and scholarship reviews as well working with university administrators to make the college experience better for our students.CUPA Board of Directors
