Welcome Parents & Families

At Colby-Sawyer College we recognize the important role that parents and family members play in our students' daily lives. We view our relationship with you as an important partnership in which we share the same goal: your student's success.

As Parent and Community Partnerships Coordinator, I am dedicated to being a resource for parents and family members of current and prospective students. I will be the point of contact for parents and families and can connect you to people at the College who can help with different situations or questions that may arise. In addition, I can give you tools and ideas for contributing to your student's success and to keep you informed about what is happening at Colby-Sawyer through our newsletter and other email updates.

Please use the Parent and Community Partnerships Office as your Colby-Sawyer resource – call, email, or stop by the office on the second floor of the Ware Student Center when you visit campus.
