President's Parents Council


Jacksonville University's President's Parents Council is an important group who act as ambassadors for Jacksonville University in their communities. President's Parents Council members provide Jacksonville University with direction by studying issues, offering guidance, and acting as liaisons between the parent body and administration on key issues for our campus and in higher education. Members of the Council support the University by making annual gifts at the Order of the Dolphin level or one of its giving societies.  Members serve as representatives in their geographic area to prospective Jacksonville University students and families and make future Dolphins feel welcomed into the University family.​​
