Vice President's Welcome

Dr. Paul OliaroOn behalf of California State University, Fresno and your Division of Student Affairs, I would like to welcome you to the Parents Association web page!  This program and this website emphasize the important role that parents play as partners with the University in helping your students succeed.

We are pleased that you have taken the time to learn more about the Parents Association and the very special role this organization plays on campus.  The Parents Association has worked hard to support the Division of Student Affairs in our efforts to assist students as they work their way in, through and out of the university.  Past Parents Association volunteer efforts and financial contributions have supported Student Affairs services such as the Learning Resource Center, New Student Orientation (“Dog Days”), Alcohol Education, Services for Students with Disabilities, and many more.

As a parent, relative or supporter of a student at California State University, Fresno, I encourage you to take this opportunity to become involved with our Parents Association. It is an enjoyable way to stay connected with what is happening on campus.  In the process, you can support our student's success and meet other proud “Bulldog” parents.

Once again, I thank you for taking an active interest in your student’s education.  I hope you will get involved and learn more about the Division of Student Affairs and the services available to your student.

Go Dogs! 

Dr. Carolyn Coon
Interim Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students
