Committee Charge

The family engagement committee seeks to develop relationships with families that encourage students’ learning and development while at IC. We strive to engage families with the campus community, share critical campus resources, and establish a shared partnership towards student success. There are two primary responsibilities of the family engagement committee:

  1. Provide oversight and management of Family Weekend including (a) selection of dates; (b) development of the overall program; (c) budget; (d) management of individual events; (e) assessment of family weekend programs
  2. Development of new strategies to engage families of current students including, for example, strategic communication, volunteer opportunities, leadership or involvement in family engagement planning, developing parent networks online or by major metropolitan area, etc.
