Welcome, Vanderbilt parents and families. Find information here to get involved with the university, support your student’s needs, plan visits to campus, and more.
We know that student success is rooted in a deep sense of belonging, feeling accepted and having the resources to realize their full potential.
We believe that personal purpose can only be found through relentless exploration and challenge.
We value collaboration over competition, breaking down silos to pursue personal discovery and research opportunities to impact our world.
We remain open to new perspectives, people, challenges and ideas so we can be change agents. We never stop growing and achieving.
Parents are invited to attend Vanderbilt Chapter events. Come out and meet fellow Vanderbilt parents and alumni in your area.
