Parent Ambassadors

 Panther Parent Ambassadors

Panther Parent Ambassadors are engaged Pitt parents who are committed to partnering with us to ensure student success. Panther Parent Ambassadors work to strengthen relationships and form partnerships between parents and the University. In addition, they play a key role in enhancing parent programming in regional areas, helping to cultivate and maintain hospitable parent communities.



Panther Parent Ambassadors will receive:

  • Custom Parent Ambassador polo shirt (first year)
  • Special invitations to specific programs and campus tours
  • Parent Ambassador promotional items
  • Invitation to Family Weekend Breakfast
  • Special seating for Spring Commencement
  • Discount on Family Weekend registration


Pitt Summer Send-offs are one of the ways that Panther Parent Ambassadors share their experience and “Pitt Parent Expertise” with incoming freshmen students and their parents. These casual, comfortable events are held in regional areas where Pitt has concentrations of incoming first-year and transfer students, and are held in conjunction with a regional Pitt Alumni Club.   See this informational webinar for an overview of Summer Sendoffs.

In addition, Ambassadors may assist with on-campus activities such as behind-the-scenes research facility tours, Parent Panel Discussions/Webinars, Parents and Family Orientation, and Family Weekend. Interested Ambassadors should contact Mike Dolinger, Parent Liaison, to inquire about any of these opportunities at or (412) 624-8548.


The membership fee is $50 per year, per parent, on a rolling basis.
