About Us

Mission & Vision

Gopher Family Engagement is here to support the parents and family members as they support students of the University of Minnesota. We support parents and family members by answering questions, helping navigate the university, assisting in finding the appropriate resources and helping talk through any challenges the parents and family members of our students are experiencing.

We communicate with families primarily through our family portal, Gopher Family Connection. Here regular posts are shared to inform parents and family members and you are even able to join various communities of interest. Join today and stay informed!

Additionally, Gopher Family Engagement hosts events (like Family Weekend) to connect family members with campus and with the day-to-day lives of their student. These activities will help you to become more familiar with the campus and become a part of the University of Minnesota tradition.
