Parent & Family Council

Established on August 8, 2011, Parent & Family Council is led by its founding president, Janice Gumas (BS ‘85).

The SF State Parent & Family Council acts as a well-informed resource for the University. Members assist in academic recruiting, promote fundraising and advocacy efforts, and offer the parents’ perspective to key administrators in the University.

As a Parent & Family Council member, you have the opportunity to:

  • Attend special meetings on campus where you will hear directly from administrators, faculty and staff about what is happening on campus.
  • Volunteer at new student orientation, and help with recruitment in high schools and college fairs to promote SF State.
  • Participate in new student on-campus orientation programming for parents.
  • Be an advocate and support the University’s legislative agenda at the state, federal and local levels.
  • Identify fundraising opportunities that would interest parents, guardians and
    families of our students.
