Parents and families play a special role in the Clarkson experience.

Clarkson works in partnership with parents and families to keep communication lines open. We encourage you to participate in your student's education and help him/her make the most of the Clarkson experience.  

Families receive our biannual Parents Newsletter that provides important information and highlights exciting opportunities for students. Special family weekends are planned each year. You can also make a difference for all Clarkson students through your participation in the Clarkson Fund.

Come and explore your role in the Clarkson community.


Clarkson University is a nationally ranked research university and the institution of choice for more than 3,500 enterprising, high-ability undergraduate and graduate students.  Through 50+ programs, we educate remarkably effective engineers, scientists, health professionals, business people, and creative leaders who easily defy convention and engage “What’s next.”
