At times, parents and families may have to travel a parallel road with their students as their young adults encounter speed bumps or detours during their college journey. We’re here to help you help your student stay the course and overcome any obstacles to success at Pitt.  You can reach Parent and Family Liaison, Sandy Talbott, at or 412-624-8548.
