Sarah Lawrence College Parents Council

The Sarah Lawrence College Parents Council is a leadership group that was established to support Sarah Lawrence College in building a strong, engaged, and informed parent community. The Council also helps the College in key initiatives to move the Sarah Lawrence mission forward. A chair or co-chairs lead the Council with support from a member of the College's Advancement staff.

Philanthropic Impact

A Sarah Lawrence education is, and has always been, a collaborative enterprise—shaped by our founders, our faculty, our leadership, our generous alumni, and daily by our remarkable students. The Sarah Lawrence model of rigorous, individualized education is widely emulated. But we cannot stand still.

Sarah Lawrence’s $200 million campaign maps out a vision that will ensure the College continues its forward momentum: educating intellectually rigorous, creative thinkers and doers who are singularly prepared to tackle the world. With your participation, we will realize this vision.
