Samuel Ginn College of Engineering

Parents' Association


Students are not the only ones who make a transition to college life - their parents often do as well. They also need support, information and resources to help with this adjustment. The college's Parents' Association is designed to provide parents with information and resources that enable them to assist their student and better understand their child’s education at Auburn. It also offers a supportive environment in which parents can engage with other parents, as well as opportunities to partner with the college during their student's time at Auburn.

We invite you to partner with us in support of your student by joining the Parents’ Association and taking advantage of the opportunities we offer. We are committed to providing your student the finest engineering education; and providing you support during this journey as well.

Parents' Leadership Council

The Parents' Leadership Council (PLC) is a critical component of the Parents’ Association and is the foundation of the college’s parent giving program. It is invaluable to the college's efforts to engage parents and help create and foster the Auburn Engineering family. All of our students benefit from the work and generosity of this extraordinary group of parents. Members of the PLC:

  • Support Auburn Engineering through a financial gift of $1,000 or more annually, or through an endowment level gift of $25,000 over five years for an area of interest to you
