Helpful Resources for Families

Whenever possible, let your student be the one to contact an office, ask a question, give feedback, or research how to accomplish something on campus. Our students need to develop relationships with campus offices, and they will be building real-world problem-solving skills when they do the work themselves.

JMU Office of Family Engagement serves as your first point of contact with questions, comments, concerns or just to serve as an empathic listener. Call us at (540) 568-3190, email
