The Division of University Advancement builds relationships that foster advocacy, support and investment in UNC Asheville.
National Parents Council
The Parents Council is an active and enthusiastic group of parents whose purpose is to involve UNC Asheville parents in campus and regional activities that promote the University, enrich their students’ college experience, nurture student career opportunities, support the financial needs of the University, and make the university process a positive one for all involved.
The Council meets twice a year on campus with the Chancellor, academic leaders and senior administration; hosts summer events for incoming students and parents as requested; acts as ambassadors for the University by connecting future UNC Asheville students in their home communities; and spreads the word about UNC Asheville!
Parents make leadership annual gifts to be part of this select group on campus. You can learn more about the Council by calling Sallie Broach at 828.232.2407.
