We value parents and family members as partners in your student’s success. The Parent and Family Program helps you stay connected to campus and serve as your resource throughout your student’s college career. Whether it’s attending our Homecoming, engaging with our MSOE Proud newsletter or visiting us on campus, there are many ways to stay connected to the MSOE community.

Parent and Family Giving

Parent Leadership Circle

Established in 2024, the Parent Leadership Circle recognizes current parents who have donated $1,000 or more to any purpose at MSOE from July 1 to June 30 of each year. By becoming a part of the PLC, you are contributing to the success of all students.

Parent and Family Fund

The Parent and Family Fund supports six different areas on campus that impact the student experience. All gifts made to the Parent and Family Fund go directly back to campus and will impact your student while they are at MSOE.
