Husky Parents 101: Student career development

On Saturday, March 7, 2015 Parent and Family Programs hosted its first-ever Husky Parents 101 event. The morning provided an opportunity for learning, networking, and discussing ways to help UW undergraduates as they develop their career paths. Parents and families heard from University experts about how to navigate the various on-campus career resources available to students, as well as learned about current career-related research and gained insight into job preparation strategies. Participants also had a chance to chat one-on-one with faculty and staff and network with other Husky parents in a roundtable format.

With such great post-event feedback, we look forward to continuing the Husky Parents 101 series in the future. We encourage those who were not able to attend the event in-person to watch the video coverage.

Husky Parents 101: Supporting your student

Embarking on the college experience is a new and exciting time – not just for freshmen, but also for you, their families. We understand that this transition can be challenging; that’s why, across the University, we share a goal of promoting your student’s growth and success. During summer parent orientations, Parent and Family Program’s presents Husky Parents 101: A guide to supporting your student.
