Welcome to the Vincennes University Family!
The Office of Parent and Family Services at Vincennes University is committed to serving students by providing assistance and support of the family unit through quality parent programs and communication tools as a means to facilitate student success.
VU realizes that as each student learns to balance the load between social life, academics, and being away from home, there may be struggles. We realize that your student’s concerns are your concerns. We appreciate that you as parents and other family members are there to provide support and encouragement.
To assist you in staying connected to Vincennes University, Parent and Family Services is your connection when you have problems or concerns and are not sure where to call. Hopefully, your student’s college experience will give you a great sense of pride and joy as he or she grows into a mature adult. But, there may be times when you become perplexed, discouraged, or just a bit concerned. A good place to start is to sign up for our e-newsletter. About once a month, VU will send you an e-mail with important information, reminders, and helpful hints.
As your family navigates the college process continue to visit the parent pages. Here you will find information that will help you help your student along the way with useful information such as our Academic Labs and Tutoring information.
First time on campus? Another helpful resource is our college glossary. This is a list of words and terms you only hear in the wild world of higher education such as provost, bursar, and syllabus.
Is your student graduating soon? Make sure you have your calendar marked and have all the details. For all the scoop just visit our Commencement pages for up to date information that will make this day one to remember.
In addition to parents and family, we welcome friends and visitors, too.
Frustrated and just want to talk to someone on campus with an answer? Please contact the Office of Parent and Family Services. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday in Governor’s Hall, Room 102, next to the Administration building.
