For Parents & Families

Welcome to the Sarah Lawrence College parent and family community!

SLC parents and families are equally as creative and dynamic as their students, and we encourage you to bring that ingenuity to Sarah Lawrence! Families support the College and student body by attending virtual and in person events, by acting as ambassadors at Sarah Lawrence events and in your home community, by offering internships and career counseling support, and through fundraising activities. The Parents Council is a great way to become more engaged in the Sarah Lawrence experience while providing an important service to your student and our community.
