    Purpose

    The University of St. Francis Parents’ Network exists to promote and enhance opportunities for parents of USF students; to communicate, participate, and establish a sense of community with one another and with the students, faculty and staff of the University of St. Francis.

    History

    The Parents’ Network began in the 2000 academic year when the university recognized the importance of keeping the parents involved with each other, their children and the USF community.
