Dear UTC Parents & Family Members,

We hope that you will join the UTC Parent and Family Association and benefit from the monthly e-newsletters and information that we will provide. The UTC Parent and Family Association is your personal connection to the University and we hope that you will find it to be a helpful resource and place that you will visit for the most up-to date information. We are honored that your student has chosen UTC for their college career and will become a member of the “Chattanooga Family”. We know that the success of college students is, in part, due to the support of parents and family members. For that reason, we strive to maintain strong relationships and are committed to serving the needs of all UTC parents and family members. We aim to provide programs, activities, and resources that help parents and family members understand the needs and wants of their UTC college student. We also work directly with University administration, staff and faculty to communicate the needs and wants of UTC students, parents and family members. We believe that this type of communication directly supports student success at UTC.
Go Mocs!
