Parents & Families

Welcome to the Taylor University family! The unique partnership we get to have with parents, caregivers, and guardians is something we take to heart. You have poured into your student in countless ways to develop them for this next phase of life—college. We’re here to support you as you walk through these transformative years with them.

A monthly e-newsletter is sent to parents, grandparents, and guardians to keep families engaged in campus events. You’ll hear about key student events, important parent notices, and unique ways to get connected. Parents and grandparents who have provided the University their e-mail address receive this e-newsletter at the beginning of each month.

Area Information

Coming to campus for a visit? Parents, families, and caregivers are always welcome. Check out Area Information for local places to stay, eat, shop, and worship.

Parents Survey

Your voice matters! The Parent Relations Office and the Office of the Provost collaborate to conduct a comprehensive parent survey, where parents or caregivers are asked to evaluate their student’s academic experience, campus experience, University services, and general helpfulness. The survey is sent to current parents following the academic year in July, and results are made available in the fall.
