SMU’s Parent Leadership Council is a select group of dedicated parents who serve as ambassadors to the SMU parent community and provide volunteer and philanthropic support to enhance the life of the University and its students. Parents develop unique perspectives of SMU as they witness the transformation of their children into world-changing adults. This distinctive outlook allows SMU parents to champion the University in special ways.
SMU’s vibrant community and innovative programs position students for limitless opportunities. A deep seeded tradition of philanthropy makes this possible. The generous, annual support of SMU parents makes an immediate impact on the lives of students and helps bridge the 30% gap between the true cost of an SMU education and the price of tuition.
The support of current parents is critical to fueling every part of the SMU experience. With SMU parents contributing more than $13.5 million last year, the Parent Leadership Council hopes to inspire the continuation of a strong tradition of parent support.
