Engaging, Educating, and Supporting the entire family

Partnering with Maverick Families

We know you are critical partners in your student’s education and we understand the importance of building a strong relationship with you as soon as your student joins our campus community. The Parent & Family Center is dedicated to building and strengthening that relationship by providing opportunities for your family to stay connected, get involved and seek support.

We know that the more informed and connected you are as a family, the better we can work together to help our students achieve their goals. Engaging, educating and supporting the entire family are three of our top priorities. We look forward to a great partnership together!

Celebrating Our New Mavericks

We are dedicated to the retention and overall success of all students by promoting academic excellence and fostering lifelong learning. We offer a variety of programs and events that celebrate student involvement, engagement, and achievement. New Mavericks are encouraged to continue our Maverick traditions by participating in a number of programs and events throughout the year to assist in their smooth transition into life as a Maverick.

Region to Region | Family to Family

It is often hard to know where to get started in seeking answers to your questions. For this reason, we have Parent & Family Advisory Council members that serve as your regional representatives, willing to talk with you about any questions you may have pertaining to UTA. Through the PFAC members, we connect you with fellow Maverick parents near you and create a network through the shared experience of being a part of the UTA community.

Find Support | Get Help

The Parent and Family Center is here to support you. Our team is available Monday–Friday, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. Central Standard Time via e-mail or phone. We are happy to support you in any way you need or to connect you with a colleague across campus. We value your involvement and appreciate any chance to connect.

UTA Parents & Family Advisory Council

The Parent & Family Advisory Council (PFAC) is a voluntary group of UTA parents and family members who advocate for the needs of currently enrolled Maverick families and students. PFAC members represent UTA parents and family members across the world.

Advisory Council members play a significant role in advancing student success through an ongoing advisory relationship with the Parent & Family Center. In addition, members will have the opportunity to provide input on family-centered programs and events, as well as fundraising and development.


Being an involved parent or family member is crucial to your student's success.

Students need to know they have support as they make the transition from high school to college, and each semester thereafter.

Research studies show that the more parents are involved, the more likely their students will remain enrolled and persist to graduation.
