Teaching & Mentoring Awards Nomination Form Trojan Family Weekend

Dear Trojan Parents,

Welcome to the Trojan Family! We are happy you are utilizing this website as a resource at USC. We encourage you to check it often because we are constantly updating it! Since the Office for Parent Programs was established nearly 12 years ago, it has been our pleasure to support USC parents and provide opportunities for you to be involved in the university.

We want you to know about and experience all of the extraordinary opportunities that the Office for Parent Programs provides for Trojan parents/families. With your participation, you will be supporting the university and your students, as well as enjoying events that better connect parents with the university.

During the 2014-15 academic year, the Office for Parent Programs will offer:

  • Trojan Family Weekend, November 13-16, 2014—our biggest event, expecting thousands of parents and family members—hopefully you! Registration will be posted online at http://sait.usc.edu/parent/tfw/ in August.
  • Committee and general volunteer involvement opportunities--through completing the volunteer interest form, the Office for Parent Programs will coordinate parent volunteers who have indicated their willingness to participate on specific projects and plan parent events. Additional volunteer opportunities include welcoming new Trojan parents during Move-In Day, various volunteer assignments during Trojan Family Weekend and other events that come up during the coming year. There will also be opportunities to assist in the Office for Parent Programs at peak times when an extra pair of hands will really be appreciated. The Trojan parent volunteer forms are accessible on the Office for Parent Programs website, click here.  

Throughout the year, we will cultivate a spirit of volunteerism and Trojan Family that will reflect the lifelong and worldwide network that Trojan parents are an important part of. We encourage you to stay engaged with the Office for Parent Programs and the university as your time permits.

The Office for Parent Programs also participates in the recruitment of admitted students at student/parent events and we hope to meet you for the first time at one of these lunches or dinners. We will play a significant role in the international onsite orientation of new students and parents, welcome new Trojan parents at every orientation with a presentation on resources and programs and inform new Trojan parents that they are welcomed as volunteers and as continued partners in the success of their students at USC. Parents make a big difference!

All of your involvement begins with the Office for Parent Programs and contacting us through our website (http://www.usc.edu/student-affairs/parents) or calling us at 213.740.2080. We will respond to every call and email. We will also coordinate all events, make all appointments, administer any needed ad hoc committees related to parent involvement, and of course, continue to provide support and resources for Trojan parents. We project a dynamic year ahead of involvement and Trojan friendship.
