The University's platform for emergency or urgent communication is shsu.edu/katsafe.  It is advisable to have your student add your contact information to their account for KatSafe notifications and/or monitor the website anytime you have a question regarding the University's response to emergency situations.  

Purpose:

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

Mission:

Our mission is to create unique opportunities to engage and support parents, who in return, contribute to student retention.

Vision & Values:

We will facilitate 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, we are here to serve you.


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