Parent Engagement on the Rise at UCI
"The whole experience of UCI for both our children has been nothing but positive," says Nigel Ball, a parent of two UCI students. "That is why we're so keen to continue to help UCI be successful."
Over the last 10 years, Ball has seen his son, now an alumnus, and daughter embrace new challenges and develop as leaders through the opportunities available on campus. It was because of these transformative experiences that Ball and his wife, Pam, decided to become more involved first through the Campuswide Honors Program and later through more structured parent engagement activities.
And they are not alone. Increasingly, UCI parents are recognizing the value of increased participation in their children's university lives.
