Utah Valley University is dedicated to helping our student-parents succeed. The Women’s Success Center and Wee Care Center have numerous opportunities for families to engage with the centers and with each other to build a community of support.

Parent Advisory Board

The Wee Care Parent Advisory Board addresses parent concerns and develops peer-support opportunities for parents at Wee Care. This board meets once a month to discuss and assess Wee Care Center service and parent/child needs, generate creative ideas and solutions and propose activities that will help strengthen parent-student bonds and encourage retention at UVU.

If you would like more information about the Parent Advisory Board please contact weecarecenter@uvu.edu.
