At SHSU we understand the importance of working with parents as a part of a student's support team and network.


The Office of Parent Relations mission is to partner with parents and family members of SHSU students to encourage academic achievement and personal development.  We recognize that informed, involved parents contribute to student success.

Vision & Values:

The Office of Parent Relations facilitates communication between the university and parents. Together with the help of the University community we are here to serve you.  Whether you have a question about a specific department, student support services, deadlines, or want to know more about SHSU, the Office of Parent Relations is here to serve you.

The SHSU Parents' Association (SHSUPA) is a great way to stay connected to your student and be involved.
