Dean of Students Office

Located in Building 49, the professional staff in the Dean of Students Office are dedicated to assisting all students with their questions, concerns, and grievances. The Dean’s Office assists with concerns regarding student rights and responsibilities, student grievances, policies and procedures, and student and organizational conduct issues, including appeals. Non-academic records and other services directly related to a student’s co-curricular experience at Embry-Riddle are managed by the Dean of Students Office.

Parents' and Family Association

The mission of the Parent and Family Association is to promote and foster open communication between the University Administration and parents/family members of our students. The Parent and Family Association exists to enhance opportunities for parents/families and to establish a sense of community with one another, faculty, staff and administration of Embry-Riddle Prescott. The Parent Advisory Board (PAB) is the executive council for the Parent and Family Association. The PAB members assist with scheduling our Annual Parent and Family Weekend. The PAB members also support the University and Campus by attending prospective student recruiting events throughout the country in conjunction with the Enrollment Management Department. This provides a parent’s perspective about their experiences as a member of the Embry-Riddle community.
