Offering educational programming and resources to partner with you as you guide your student through opportunities and transitions during the college years.
Berklee's Parent Office recognizes that the next few years will often have you stepping into new parenting situations and experiencing a range of transitions as your son or daughter more fully emerges into adulthood.
We know that students often first seek advice from their parents/guardians, and that when you feel informed and confident in the information that you have, you can help your student make the most of his or her college experience. Hence the Parent Office credo: Partnering with Parents for Student Success.
There are a number of free programs for parents, both online and at Berklee. These programs are designed to:
- keep you informed
- provide you with parenting strategies
- build your connections with other Berklee parents
In reviewing the Parenting Tips, Tricks and Webinars page, you will find many easily accessisble resources that you can access from the comfort of your home. We invite you to view as many programs as you can. Additionally, consider signing up for the Successful College Parenting Newsletter offered by Kay Kimball Gruder, M.Ed., certified parent coach and founder of SuccessfulCollegeParenting.com. The newsletter is written specifically for parents of pre-college and college students who want to explore new ways of addressing parenting challenges and help their student make the most of his or her college experience. Our Parent Office website also has links to recommended reading, parent videos, the Parent Handbook, career planning timelines, and information about student health and safety.
Between accessing information on our website and participating in on-site and webinar programming, you will have a range of tools and resources to help you parent throughout the year.
