The Parents Leadership Council comprises dedicated Case Western Reserve parents who, together with the Division of Student Affairs and development staff, seek to advance the university by enhancing the student experience.

Parents of a current CWRU student in good standing who make a qualifying gift of $2,500 or more to the Parents and Family Fund are eligible for council membership.

Council members have opportunities to:

  • hear the latest university news and provide feedback at council meetings;
  • serve as ambassadors and welcome new parents to CWRU;
  • foster relationships with other Case Western Reserve families and encourage philanthropic support; and
  • help the university build partnerships that provide students and new graduates with vital career support by activating professional networks.
