There are many ways to get involved. One avenue for engagement is participating in specialized events established to reach our parent community.

Parents Connect events, hosted by the College’s External Relations team, will give parents an opportunity to network with peers and interact with College representatives. By participating, you will also have an opportunity to learn ways in which you can support our efforts to remain a major source of future scientists, doctors, mathematicians, technologists, educators, and entrepreneurs.






Welcome to the Longhorn family! The College of Natural Sciences Parent Connection site was built with you in mind. We understand the importance of fostering a community where parents, just like their students, experience connection with one another and the College. You have been a big part of student’s success up to this point, and you continue to play an integral part in helping us develop leaders who cultivate innovation and make world-changing discoveries.

From special events organized for CNS parents to a bimonthly newsletter to giving opportunities, the information provided via Parent Connection is designed to keep you engaged.

We encourage you to take a look around to understand how you can get involved. If you have any questions or feedback regarding Parent Connection, please contact Marsha Reardon.
