Parent Advisory Council

Want to get more involved? Become a member of Saint Leo's Parent Advisory Council (PAC).


PAC works hand-in-hand with the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations to develop and nurture relationships between parents and the University through special events, volunteer opportunities and philanthropy.

Membership & Responsibilities

Membership is open to any parent of a current University Campus traditional student. To become a member, contact the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations at (352) 588- 8254 or

PAC provides feedback that enhances communication between the University and parents. The Council does not function as a policy-making group.

Members are asked to:

  1. Attend PAC meetings that take place twice each year (once each semester). These meetings include interaction with senior members of the Saint Leo administration.
  2. Serve a two-year renewable term.
  3. Make a contribution to the Annual Fund and/or other priorities of the University.
  4. Participate in regional events in your area.
  5. Give support to the University in four areas of activity: (1) Admissions, (2) Career Development, (3) University Advancement, (4) Parent Outreach.
  6. Provide a source of insight from the university parent perspective, and a parent body of support for the University.


PAC is involved in the development and implementation of activities that have an impact on the University at all levels. Council members are primarily engaged in activities to support the University’s Mission in each of the following areas:

  1. Admissions
    Assist the Office of Admissions with college fairs. Welcome new parents to Saint Leo through welcome calls, emails and chatroom sessions. Refer family and friends to check out Saint Leo. Host or participate in regional "send offs."
  2. Career Development
    Assist the Office of Career Planning with finding internships, job shadowing and job opportunities for Saint Leo students. Activities may also include sharing career advice and professional expertise with current students and recent graduates.
  3. University Advancement
    Encourage parental support of the Annual Fund and other financial projects. Activities may include hosting parent donor receptions, writing appeal letters, placing phone calls or sending notes to thank parents for their contributions.
  4. Parent Outreach
    Work with the Assistant Director of Alumni and Parent Relations to develop, plan and implement programs, events and volunteer activities that build a relationship between the University and parents. Activities may include assisting with Fall Family Weekend, and coordination of regional events.
