A student and their family meeting Ernie the Eagle on campus


The purpose of the Prescott Parent & Family Association is:

  • To advance the mission and goals of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University through the establishment and maintenance of contact between the University and parents and families of our students.

  • To provide a medium through which family members of current students can develop an interest in the progress and needs of Embry-Riddle, can contribute to the well-being of the University and can foster beneficial relationships among its members and the University.

  • To enable parents to participate in the life of the University by sharing the benefit of their expertise or their personal and professional associations with the University, our students, and one another. This sharing can take place through volunteer opportunities such as:

    • Participating in Parent & Family Association Committees

    • Serving as regional points of contact for other parents and students

    • Attending regional alumni/parents events

    • Identifying job placement or summer internship opportunities for Embry-Riddle students or graduates

    • Identifying and encouraging promising students to consider Embry-Riddle Prescott
