Leadership Council

A Global Sun Devil Family

The ASU Family Leadership Council is comprised of dedicated local, regional and international parents and family members committed to student success and family involvement. Council participants provide volunteer and/or financial resources to promote a vibrant university community for students and their families.

Supporting the ASU student experience

We encourage you to make the most of your ASU experience – volunteer, attend an event, share your talents and become involved with the campus community. ASU Family offers many ways to engage with the university and connect with each other, enhancing the university experience for all Sun Devils parents and families. Some of the ways the Family Leadership Council supports the ASU experience include:


Assist with the ASU Connection series, participate in focus groups, and speak on ASU family panels.
