Parents Association (ISUPA)
1010 Student Services Building
(515) 294-6054

All parents of Iowa State University undergraduate students are automatically considered members of the ISU Parents’ Association. The ISUPA serves as a link between the university and parents and families. Its mission is to serve and inform parents and to enhance the quality of student life at ISU.

There are no membership fees collected by the ISUPA. It is funded exclusively by contributions and fundraisers, such as the annual tuition raffle. The ISUPA Board of Directors, along with members of the Dean of Students Office staff, sponsors programs which include:

• Family Handbook, which is distributed to parents of all new ISU students at June orientation
• Parents’ Advisory Line (PAL), 1-800-772-8546, a toll free assistance line for families
• Parent Calling Project, a phone-a-thon to parents of new ISU students each fall
• Cyclone Family Weekend, the university’s premiere event for families largely funded by the ISUPA
• Involvement in ISU Admissions events

Parents interested in volunteering on the ISUPA Board of Directors can find the application form at the ISUPA web site.
