Parents Weekend Luncheon

Parents Association


The purpose of the Association is to assist Hillsdale College in the service and advancement of its mission.

The Association advances these ends by promoting them and soliciting support for them among parents. Through involvement in College projects and functions, fundraising and student recruitment, and effective communication with parents and others, the Association serves students by helping the College enrich students’ lives and ennoble their humanity.

Hillsdale Parents Prayer Partners Sub-Committee

The Prayer Partner Sub-Committee seeks to bring the specific needs of Hillsdale College, our students, and our faculty before the LORD in prayer.  We believe that God is in control of all things and that without His assistance we cannot hope to be or achieve all that He would have for us.
