Jacksonville University's President's Parents Council (PPC) is an important group that serves as a liaison between campus administrators and the parent body. President’s Parents Council members serve as representatives in their geographic area to prospective Jacksonville University students and families and make future Dolphins feel welcomed into the JU Family. 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 receive direct access to the President and executive staff, and provide the University with direction by studying issues, offering guidance, and acting as liaisons to administration on key issues for our campus and in higher education.​​

Get Involved

The President's Parents Council is comprised of approximately 30+ families who have been invited to serve as a liaison between campus administrators and the parent body. The Council meets twice during the school year: once each semester. Members are invited based on their interest in the council, pledge for annual support, and ability to help Jacksonville University fulfill its mission. If you are interested in joining the Council or would like to speak with a current member of the Council, contact the Office of Family Engagement at
