The Family Association was created with the intention to make your student's education a family experience!


Family Weekend will be held from October 25-27, 2024. Visit our New Student and Family Programs website to find out more and register to attend.

Our Mission:

To provide parents with the opportunity to become an active part of the university community by direct involvement in events, forums and activities designed to enhance the success and growth of our students.  In carrying out this mission, the Family Association:

  • Works together with university personnel to provide information to parents about the university through an online newsletter, a parents' network and support group, and at various outreach and orientation events;
  • Advises university administration of parent needs and concerns;
  • Promotes the advancement of services to students by assisting with special projects and external development of resources to help meet the needs of our students.

Membership Benefits:

  • Stay informed through our Facebook wall and the Family Association Blog, a family-oriented online newsletter.
  • Invitations to association-sponsored events and programs where you will meet and have the opportunity to interact with university administrators, staff and other families.
  • A direct connection to the university through the Family Hotline; available during business hours to answer questions or provide needed assistance.
  • Opportunities to become involved in planning groups and the Family Association Advisory Board.
  • The satisfaction of knowing that you actively support programs and services which directly benefit Fresno State students!

Monthly Newsletter:

  • The Family Association puts out a monthly newsletter during the academic year to help families stay informed. Download the monthly newsletter and sign up to be on the mailing list to get it emailed to you directly.
