Office of Alumni & Parents Relations
The Office of Alumni & Parent Relations serves as an advocate for Harding students’ family members by offering support, resources and events that enhance the Harding experience for you and your student and strengthen bonds with the Harding community. We work closely with the deans in the Office of Student Life and are always willing to assist in finding resources or lending an ear. Many of you live far away. When you can’t be here, we are prepared to stand in the gap for you and provide peace of mind that your student is loved and cared for. When needed, the Office of Alumni & Parent Relations will provide presence, advice and encouragement. We also will assist or direct you to the right person or department. Open communication is the best foundation for our families and students. You are vital members in the Harding family and play a key role in your student’s success and persistence in pursuit of their Harding education. We encourage you to stay connected through events and emails and get involved! Thank you for choosing Harding.
