Participate in planning Parent’s Weekend, Homecoming, Commencement Activities, Student Orientation activities, and other family oriented college events.

Contribute to a vibrant student body by identifying and recruiting outstanding students to Sierra Nevada College.

Assist with fundraising among fellow parents.

Join Us

Joining the Family Advisory Council is an exciting and meaningful way to become more engaged in your student’s education.

Meetings are held quarterly on the SNC Tahoe campus. Although it’s a great excuse to come to Tahoe, travel is not required – members are welcome to join the meetings by teleconference.

We look forward to working with you! To join the Family Leadership Council or to learn more, please contact James Uyeda.
