Parents and Family

Our Parent Philosophy

At the University of Minnesota Rochester, we believe that you as parents/guardians play a fundamental role in the success of UMR students. Therefore, it is our goal to work with you to help you understand the student experience, support student learning, and empower your student to take personal responsibility for social and academic choices. As your student is entering the role of emerging adulthood and experiencing this period of tremendous growth, you as parents may find yourself in a new role as well. We call this the role of Parent Coach.

These resources will prepare and assist parents and families to give the best possible support throughout this new transition and your student’s college success. Welcome to the UMR Family!
