Welcome to the University of Kansas Parent Association

The KU Parent Association is here to enhance communication between the University and families of KU students. Our purpose is to foster the University partnership with families in providing a quality education experience.

If you're a parent or a family member of a KU student (undergraduate or graduate), you're already a member. There are no forms to sign or dues to pay. We are committed to enhancing your experiences at the University while your student is here at KU.
