Welcome HPU Parents!
Studies show that parent involvement enhances a student’s overall collegiate experience. HPU recognizes the important role parents play in guiding and supporting students and is excited to announce the creation of a Parent Relations Program. The focus of this program is to provide parents with the resources they need to better enable their son/daughter throughout their college years. The Coordinator for Orientation and Parent Relations will also serve as a primary point of contact for HPU families. The Parents Relations Program will provide the following:
- Family Calendar and Handbook
- University Parent Guide
- Letters of Aloha
- Ohana Community Service Day
- Point of Contact for Families
- Support on Move-In Day
- Parent Track and Events During New Student Orientation
- Central Website for Parents
- HPU Family Events
As the program is in the developmental phase, parent input is greatly valued. HPU wants to provide the tools and resources that will best suit our diverse ‘ohana.
