Welcome to the

Office of Family Engagement

Welcome to Florida Atlantic University! Our goal at the Office of Family Engagement is to encourage our families to participate in their student’s college experience. We believe families continue to play a pivotal role in the ongoing success of their students. Blood-lines historically define the term "family." At FAU, “family” is defined as anyone our students feel impacts their lives, through trust, love, and support.

Our goal is to create a life long partnership with our families and students. The Office of Family Engagement believes in maintaining an environment for families to have direct access to any questions and concerns regarding their students. We encourage families to stay connected with your student and the FAU community. Through multiple forms of media (newsletters, social media, and ongoing family training), our office keeps you connected throughout the different stages of your student’s collegiate career. We are here to ensure you have all the tools necessary to best support your student. 

Common Conversations

Family Engagement Message 

Spring 2020:

Welcome back, students and families! Spring 2020 is here and now is a great opportunity to evaluate the levels of support your students require from you and the support we can offer as well. Self-reflection and family conversations before the start of the term can guide you to what the upcoming year looks like for your family. Our Office of Family Engagement is available to help with any questions on how to engage in these types of conversations. Together, we can create a level of supportive comfort, where our students can focus their own “Big picture of Success!” Go Owls!
