Communicating with the Parent Community

Members of the Parents Advisory Council communicate regularly with other Carleton parents about upcoming events and issues.

The Parents Advisory Council advises the College on communication with parents, and in consultation with staff help develop the monthly now@carleton parent e-newsletter and contribute as possible to conversations on the parents email discussion list and Facebook group.

All Roles & Responsibilities


now@carleton E-newsletter

now@carleton is sent via email to all Carleton parents every month during the academic year. It features updates from campus, content about students and faculty, opportunities for students such as internships or study abroad programs, reminders about support available for students, and important deadlines.

Parents Email Discussion Group

The parent Carleton Email Group is a great way to connect with other parents. It provides a forum for parent-to-parent communication, from questions about packing for arrival freshman year and the best care packages for finals, to tips on navigating graduation weekend.
