Parent and Family Programs

Mission Statement

Parent and Family Programs, in association with Student Affairs, partners with students’ families to help them thrive at OU, on campus and in life.


  1. Provide resources and events to support students’ growth and success
  2. Serve as a bridge between OU families and the University through communication and outreach efforts
  3. Encourage healthy and supportive family/student relationships


Student Affairs has long been the home of Sooner Parents, OU’s premier parent and family organization. Sooner Parents has grown in number and reach, providing hundreds of thousands of dollars of capital project funding, student scholarships, and funding grants for the OU Community. 

Beginning in summer 2017, Student Affairs partnered with the Student Government Association in creating a new position designed to improve our outreach to Sooner Families. The Parent and Family Programs Coordinator will become the central contact point for families from all over the country. The PFP Office will be conveniently located in the Oklahoma Memorial Union and open during business hours and for special events involving families. We will utilize as a handy website for information and quick links to all campus resources.
