Parent Programs

Dear Parents,

Kirbie Britt Dockery, Interim Director of Advancement, Director of Alumni Affairs & Annual GivingThank you for entrusting your son or daughter to Methodist University. Just as your child has joined the Methodist University Community, so have you! Whether you are sending your first or last child off to college, this is a very exciting time for your family; a time filled with anticipation of many new experiences to come. At Methodist University, we fully recognize the integral role parents play in the development of our students. We believe that as parents you should have streamlined access to information that you will need to help make your child’s MU experience a success.

As the new coordinator of the Parents Program here at Methodist University, I plan to update and grow the parents’ website on a continual basis so that it may be a reliable resource and your best offsite connection to the MU community. This site will be available to you as your child begins his or her first day of Orientation, all the way up until graduation day. Recognizing the critical role that you play in the lives of our students, we have redesigned this website to help you become better acquainted with the faculty, staff, and critical departments that will assist you with your integration into the MU Community, as well as providing links to current activities and happenings going on around the MU campus.

Please register with us to share your contact information and subscribe to the parents e-newsletter and MU Today magazine
