Parent Engagement and Philanthropy

Support Our Students

Join an active network of parents and family members who work closely with President Eric F. Spina and Karen Spina to advocate for students and increase awareness of UD resources through leadership, philanthropy and volunteerism. Your involvement will build community with fellow parents while improving the student experience!

Parent Leadership Council Volunteers:

  • Make an annual suggested gift of $2,500 or commensurate with your ability and affinity for UD.*
  • Provide feedback and engage in a discussion on University priorities at two council meetings per year.
  • Attend or host UD events, receptions or other gatherings in your local community.
  • Encourage other parents, your student and friends to participate in One Day, One Dayton (UD’s annual giving day).
  • Facilitate communication among parents in your social networks.
  • Thank other parents who make an annual gift to UD.
  • Identify and encourage other families to join the PLC.

*PLC members are also asked to consider a legacy contribution during or after their tenure on the PLC.

UD became a very special part of our lives from the moment our son and daughter enrolled, so we choose to be involved with the University that gives our children so much.
