Hood’s Parent Advisory Council is comprised of involved family and friends who enthusiastically give of their time, talent and treasure. Whether volunteering at campus events, serving as a resource for future Hood parents, or supporting our Blazer student-athletes, you will find like-minded partners committed to Hood’s primary goal of student success.

Parent and family leaders are an integral component of the vibrant experience we offer our Hood students. Your engagement and support of the College’s missions and goals are critical to the success of every Hood student. Joining the Hood College Parent Advisory Council is a way for you to actively demonstrate your commitment to Hood College.
