Attention, parents of Marion Community Schools students: Coming up on Saturday, Nov. 11, you have an opportunity to learn more about the path to college from experts right here in our community!

Indiana Wesleyan University and Ivy Tech Community College are co-hosting Parent University from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, in partnership with Marion Community Schools. The event is designed for parents of students of all ages who want to help their children explore what their path to college might look like.

The event will feature interactive workshops that will support parents in navigating college-related questions. Workshops will address key topics such as admissions, financial aid, academic preparation, and parenting for post-secondary success. Parents will leave this event with the resources, tools, and information needed to help their future college students thrive.

The keynote speaker will be Reggie Lipscomb, a motivational speaker who is also president of Grace House, a residential program established to help men in the process of substance abuse recovery. Lipscomb also works in the Grant County Sheriff’s Office with drug court.

“I am really excited about what the partnership with Ivy Tech and Marion Community Schools brings to Parent University,” said Carolina Forman, coordinator of multicultural access programs at IWU. “I can attest to the energy each leader has brought to the task of supporting Grant County families in their educational journeys! Regardless of whether a parent has been through college, we have a lot of tools and resources that help parents navigate the process more easily.”

The event is free and will be held in Barnes Student Center on IWU’s Marion campus. (Click here to see a map of the campus.) A free lunch will be open to all participants at noon. No registration is required. We hope to see you there!

For event reminders, RSVP to the Facebook event page. (Not required for attendance - just a way to keep up on any updated information, and to get calendar reminders!)
