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