Parent 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.

The Saint Anselm College Parents’ Program welcomes current and past parents and family members. As ambassadors for the college, parent volunteers demonstrate their commitment to the future of their children's alma mater. The Parents’ Program also facilitates opportunities for parents to become involved in the life of the college and to preserve and enhance the quality of the Saint Anselm experience for their children, their children's classmates and future students.

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

Volunteer as a parent liaison for the college by:

  • Participating in events on campus and in your local community. Assisting the Office of College Advancement by encouraging parent giving and thanking parent donors.
  • Aiding the Office of Admission by helping to recruit students, contacting parents or hosting regional receptions.
  • Supporting the Office of Career Services by developing internship opportunities and advising students starting professional careers.


“We consider it a privilege to be able to participate in an organization on the campus which is dedicated to helping parents develop a richer understanding of what it is like to be an Anselmian. Meeting other parents, alumni, students, faculty and staff has been very rewarding and educational” 
— Rob and Colleen McCabe P’21 


Parents' Leadership Council

The Parents’ Leadership Council (PLC) is a group of parent volunteers who play a leadership role at Saint Anselm College.

Membership on the Parents' Leadership Council provides an opportunity to participate in the growth and development of Saint Anselm while fostering stronger ties to your student’s experience and the Anselmian community.

PLC members contribute to the college at a leadership level, support the education of their children and other Saint Anselm students, and they help advance the reach and reputation of the college. Members share a common interest in strengthening the college's mission to deliver a rigorous liberal arts education rooted in Catholic, Benedictine values.
