Family Connection Council

Family Connection is a community organization that strives to enhance student success through support, communication, and partnerships with Florida State University families. Family Connection strives to be the recognizable community and resource for Florida State University family members. The Family Connection Council serves as a subdivision of Family Connection. As liaisons between Florida State University and family members, Family Connection Council members establish lifelong supporters for the FSU community. Serving as a Family Connection Council member is an excellent way to actively engage in the student experience at Florida State University.

The Family Connection Council is a voluntary group of engaged Florida State University family members who advocate for the needs of families/students, assist with various fundraising efforts to help Florida State University secure the funds needed to support world-class services and opportunities for students, and serve as a sounding board when the University needs family input on decisions affecting the student experience. Members of Family Connection’s Council are not employees of Florida State University, but can be a valuable resource to other family members of FSU students who need advice, support, and encouragement during the college experience.

Mission: Family Connection Council serves as a liaison between Florida State University and family members to establish lifelong supporters for the FSU community.

Vision: Family Connection Council connects family members with Florida State University.

The Dean of Student Department supports an inclusive academic environment through education, empowerment, crisis management, and advocacy of students in collaboration with campus and community partners.

We welcome students and family members to connect with the Dean of Students Department if you are experiencing a crisis or just need someone to talk through a problem or experience you are having at Florida State University.
