Panther Parents’ Association


Your student’s college experience is an exciting time for the whole family, and your role in your student’s life will be integral in the coming years. Research shows that family involvement is critical to student success. We hope that you know parents and families are valued as partners in education here at Claflin. Students benefit when their family supports and participates in their university experience, while also encouraging the student to take responsibility for that experience.
