SHU Parents

We believe that well-informed parents and families enhance the SHU experience and promote student success.

Parent AssociationWelcome to the SHU Family!


As a parent or guardian of a student enrolled at Sacred Heart, you are automatically a member of the SHU Parent Association. The Parent Association was created with the goal of ensuring that your student's education is a family experience! We believe that well-informed parents and families enhance the SHU experience and promote student success.

Parent Association members are welcome at all athletic contests, performing art shows, and large campus events, including Family Weekend—a wonderful SHU tradition! Members also receive invitations to other special events, both on-campus and in your hometown, throughout the year, as well as access to Sacred Heart University Magazine, an online quarterly bringing you the latest news and stories from the Heart.

For parents looking to get more involved while your student is at Sacred Heart, please consider joining the Parent Council or the President’s Leadership Society. If you have any questions, or suggestions on how to improve the SHU parent experience, please let us know by emailing parents2@sacredheart.edu.

We hope that you enjoy being part of the SHU Family. Go Pioneers!
