Family Programs

Our office was formed to ensure that the families of Rutgers University - Newark students have the ability to engage in and support the campus experience. Explore our various family resources and programs we provide throughout the academic year.

Family Forum

Happening twice a year in the fall and spring semester, Family Forum is an opportunity for Rutgers-Newark parents to ask current students questions about the RUN experience and any other questions they may have about Rutgers-Newark.

Family Advisory Council (FAC)

The FAC is an opportunity for parents to take the lead in communicating with RUN about what they need and want to see from the University. Additionally, the FAC creates events for parents to build community with one another and navigate the experience of having a student at RUN.
