Parent Council

The Eckerd College Parent Council is a group of committed parents who support the College both financially and through service. The Council serves as representatives of the larger parent community, provides input to the College as needed, and enriches the Eckerd community by encouraging parent financial support and enthusiasm for issues critical to Eckerd’s mission. Parent Council meetings are held annually on campus, in the fall.
