Pitt 2017 Family of the Year
The Legatzke Family from Madison, WI

We recognize the challenges that come with parenting a college student and we are here to help.  Our sincere commitment is to support you as you support your student.At times, parents and families travel a parallel road with their students as they encounter speed bumps or detours during their college journey. We’re here to help you help your student overcome any obstacles to success at Pitt.  Please work with your student as they take more control over their own lives and decision-making.  If you need guidance as to resources for students and their families please contact Parent and Family Liaison, Mike Dolinger, at or 412-624-8548.

This Web site is designed to be a major source of information for you—keeping you updated on campus happenings and connecting you to helpful Pitt resources.  Be sure to monitor our news and events page to stay current.  We also share valuable suggestions and tips in the form of webinars and newsletters to keep you up-to-date with important student issues and opportunities.
