Current Parents

The University of San Diego realizes and values the importance of our partnership with parents to advance our goals and missions and ultimately ensure the best possible experience academically, socially, spiritually and physically for students.

The college years are years of growth, change and rewards for both students and parents. We celebrate that with you and believe that you play a very important role in supporting the success of your student. Sometimes it’s helpful to speak to other parents who have already gone through the challenges your son or daughter may be facing. At USD, we have a parent community who would like to offer you support and advice as you work through your new role as a collegiate parent during your student’s time at USD. To connect with one of our parents, please email

We want your experience to be rewarding at USD. The Office of Parent and Family Relations offers many ways to be involved with the University. Through involvement, you will gain a greater sense of community, meet other parents and families, further connect with your student, become more knowledgeable of current programs and events, and stay informed on the latest USD news.

We look forward to a relationship with you over your student’s time here and beyond: be a USD ambassador by attending events in your area, represent USD at a College Fair, host an event in your home, offer an internship through Career Services or volunteer at one of the family signature events on campus. You can also enhance the student experience by providing financial assistance to USD programs or students in need by supporting the USD Parent Fund or the Parent Partnership Fund. However you decide to be involved, we look forward to your participation in the Torero family.
