About Parent and Family Services


As a parent or family member, you play a vital role in the success of your student at Illinois State University. That’s because student success is the result of a collective partnership between the University, the student, and their family. We are preparing the student for the next phase of their life. The student will experience a few challenges along the way, and when they do, there are University resources to assist them along with the support of their family. It is through those challenges that the greatest growth and learning occurs.
