Welcome!

Welcome to Stetson University! As a parent of a Stetson Hatter, you are now part of a wonderful community! We want your son or daughter to have an enriching and successful collegiate experience. Go Hatters!

Stetson University believes that parental support will aid student success. With that in mind, Stetson University has created a site that is dedicated to parents. Over the next couple of months, you will receive an email blast that will prompt you to review new information pertaining to you and your family. It is my hope that you will find this information valuable and useful as you navigate the Stetson experience.

We hope that you take advantage of the services and resources that Stetson University provides. We are a one stop shop for students, parents and families and our goal is to:

  • Foster parent relationships with the university
  • Provide opportunities for parent involvement in the Stetson University Community
  • Distribute information on college student development and trends
  • Communicate regularly with parents in order to prepare you on the Stetson Experience
  • Enhance the student experience by building these connections with parents

Our vision is to fully integrate Hatter parents into the university community. We are excited to have you join our family and we look forward to working with you and your student.  Below you will find a link to the Vice President of Student Affairs Blog, as well as the link to the Stetson University Parent website. These two sites will be important sites to mark as your favorites, as they will be updated on a regular basis with helpful information.

On March 14, I had the opportunity to serve as host to the French Exchange Delegation from NASPA-Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education during a Florida visit that included a stop at Stetson. While here, they met with President Libby, Provost Paul and other key campus leaders.

NASPA’s international exchange program has been in existence since the mid-1990s. The program is designed to expose administrators to global practices of student affairs and services. The exchange program is reciprocal in nature where NASPA coordinates delegations from the USA to be hosted by institutions in other countries and NASPA sister associations coordinate delegations to visit the USA.

Delegations typically consist of three to five senior-level administrators and are one week in duration. The first NASPA international exchange occurred in September 1996, when a NASPA delegation from the U.S. visited France, hosted by The Centre National des Oeuvres Universitaires et Scolaires (CNOUS). The delegation that was at campus is also visiting Rollins, Embry-Riddle, and UCF. After the weeklong visit, they will attend the NASPA Annual Conference starting on Sunday, March 17, 2013.
