Current 2017-18 PPB Members

The Parents Philanthropy Board provides a unique opportunity for UMD parents to fund vital programs that enrich the UMD students experience and the opportunity to engage with the university and the Division of Student Affairs; bringing the viewpoints of a geographically and professionally diverse group of undergraduate parents to provide feedback on significant issues.

Parents are the greatest ambassadors to the university. This distinguish group of parents:

  • Participate in and promote parent involvement in regional events
  • Provide outreach to new and prospective University of Maryland families
  • Host events for parents, prospective students, incoming students and their families
  • Take part in enhancing career services by increasing student networking opportunities by participating in student mentorships and internships

All members of the board have made a significant commitment to the Division of Student Affairs and are members of the Colonnade Leadership Circle, which recognizes annual gifts of $2,500 or more.

Thank you to all our current Parents Philanthropy Board members. We greatly appreciate your service and support to the University of Maryland.
