Resources for Your Family

Parents Group

A group of employees who are parents meets informally each month for a brown bag lunch and social time. There is no agenda or presentation; just bring your lunch and make a friend. The group meets from noon to 1 p.m. the third Thursday of each month. Lunches are typically in the Abbott Alumni Center. Check the university calendar for details.
