“Thank you, your support means so much!” Kathy Hopper, CU-Boulder Parent
The Office of Parent Relations (OPR) keeps parents and families informed so that they have answers when needed. Maybe your student calls at 10:00 PM on a Sunday night with a problem, but is not necessarily calling to have you solve it. Sometimes they are just looking for someone to listen. A parent’s response could be “That’s interesting. What are you going to do about it?” This is the type of reply that will give your student the tools to develop decision making and problem solving skills. However, it is good for parents to have some general information about the university and campus life. That is one of the many ways that Parent Relations can help you.
The OPR works with departments, news, policy changes, and parent issues across campus to be informed so parents are informed. The OPR is a clearing house for parents and our number one priority is responding to parent questions quickly and accurately.

“Being involved gives me a better understanding of the opportunities available to students, as well as a good idea of what is happening on campus. But the best part is helping other parents adjust to CU Boulder.”
