Panther Parents Association

The PPA is a collaborative initiative between parents of current Pitt students and the University designed to:  keep parents informed about available resources, provide opportunities to meet and interact with other Pitt parents, and promote and support University programs.

As the parent or guardian of a Pitt student, you are automatically a member of the Panther Parents Association (PPA)!

Members of the PPA will receive a monthly electronic newsletter filled with guidance, tips, and information about resources and events on campus.  PPA members also receive a Parent and Family Handbook and have a direct line to the Office of Parent and Family Resources via and 412-624-8548.  An archived website of recent webinars on topics such as move-in, safety, housing, healthcare, and more are available at this Web site.  The University of Pittsburgh strives to support all parents of current students, as well as offering opportunities for parents to become more involved in our Pitt family.

Panther Parent Ambassadors is a step-up level of on and off-campus activity for our parents.  Please click here for organization details and to become a Panther Parent Ambassador or contact Sandy Talbott at 412-624-8548 or regarding any questions. 

Hail to Pitt!
