Parent Access

Do you have questions about your student’s academics? Spiritual life? Internships? Health and wellness? Parent Access is the perfect place to connect with Hope staff — and other parents who have questions just like yours.

Parent Access was originally created as an online chat series featuring Hope College leaders. You can access the chat logs from these past events below.

In the coming months, we will be changing the format of Parent Access — but the goal remains the same: Connecting families to leaders at Hope College. We are exploring a new format featuring video interviews. If you have a topic you would like us to cover, please email parents@hope.edu
