Welcome to Family Engagement

Office of Student Transitions and Family Engagement

Welcome to the Lynx Family! The CU Denver Family Engagement office recognizes the important role that parents and families play in supporting our students. We strive to provide you with engagement opportunities and invite you to our community.

We are committed to forming partnerships and providing resources for CU Denver parents, families, and support persons and offer a variety of ways for you to become familiar with current happenings and campus resources. We want to empower you to understand the CU Denver college experience to best support your student.

If you can't find what you're looking for or need additional support, please don't hesitate to contact us! 

Family & Guest Orientation

We welcome and strongly encourage family members and guests to participate in Family & Guest Orientation.

The Family & Guest Orientation is a way for you to get questions answered and learn how to support your student best as they transition to the university. As a student support person, we rely on you to encourage students to engage academically and socially.

When you attend the virtual orientation, you can expect the following content:

  • Mental Health Resources
  • Student Success Resources
  • Campus Resources
  • Q&A

We offer two Zoom sessions over the summer:

CU Denver Spotlight Sessions

We welcome and strongly encourage family members, guests, and students to participate in our Spotlight Sessions.
