Parents Council

The Parents Council consists of parents and families who pledge to participate in Longwood activities for the good of the university and to contribute financially to fund Council activities aimed at student academic achievement, citizen leadership, and overall university enhancement.

The Council provides grant opportunities for students, student groups, faculty, and staff through an annual monetary gift. These financial gifts are payable to the Longwood Parents Council fund and are controlled by the Council. Since its inception in 2009, the Longwood Parents Council has contributed over $86,000 to the community through the grants process.
