Parent and Family Involvement at Saint Anselm College 

When your son or daughter steps foot on the Hilltop and begins their time as a student at Saint Anselm, you too become a part of our Anselmian family. When you see how much your child loves Saint Anselm, you want to get involved - to support your child and help other young people have the same great experience.

As ambassadors for the college, parent and family member volunteers demonstrate their commitment to the future of their children's alma mater. We invited you to become involved in the life of the college and to preserve and enhance the quality of the Saint Anselm experience for your children, your children's classmates and future students.

Take this opportunity to get involved today! Become an active Anselmian.

Members share a common interest in strengthening the college's mission to deliver a rigorous liberal arts education rooted in Catholic, Benedictine values.
