Parents' Council


The Parents’ Council serves as a bridge of communication between Washington & Jefferson College parents and the College’s administration, faculty, student body, alumni, and friends. Members of the Parents’ Council serve as spokespeople for the entire parent constituency and as such, are parent leaders in advising and financially supporting W&J.

The Parents’ Council at W&J certainly values the investment in a W&J education. This dedicated group of family members gives their time and financial resources to help the College continue to educate young men and women of uncommon integrity, competence, and maturity.

This select group of parents of current students meets twice annually, in the fall and spring, and may serve while their students are enrolled at W&J.
