Welcome to the Career and Counseling Parent Page
Did you know . . . that parents are the #1 influence over their sons/daughters educational and career choices!
UMC wants to help parents to help their sons/daughters to prepare for and make sound career and educational decisions.
University freshmen aren't the only ones who may feel a little anxious when they arrive on the University of Minnesota, Crookston Campus. Parents face their own uncertainties about how to let go and yet remain involved in their sons/daughters lives throughout their college career. The Career and Counseling Department responds to parental concerns and offers a network of support and information about careers, counseling, alcohol and other drugs, diversity and multicultural affairs, and disability services.

Alcohol Use on Campus" and Alcohol and College Life (UMTC)(Web)
are available at no charge to parents of UMC students.
The Parents survey is a place for you to share both your questions and your expertise as a parent of an undergraduate student. If you would like to ask a question or suggest a new topic for career and counseling department email our staff. firstname.lastname@example.org.
