Office of Parent Relations

The Office of Parent Relations works in conjunction with parents to support and enhance the Champlain College experience for all students, while striving to keep parents informed and connected to Champlain.

If you are the parent of a prospective Champlain student, you may find the information on our admissions site helpful.

“The Office of Parent Relations kept us informed about important initiatives, news, and changes at Champlain, especially those pertaining directly to parents or to our student’s experience. Our daughter also benefited from our deeper knowledge of the programs available to students. We found this enhanced knowledge enabled us to make introductions for her to meet with specific administrators when seeking career advice or when she needed support, but did not know where to turn."

- Heidi and Scott Jamieson, P'14
