Parents & Families

Welcome to the Clark family!

Your student isn’t the only one who has joined the Clark community. This is a special time for your entire family, and we want you to stay involved and informed during their time with us. We hope you will be able to learn more about Clark University, visit campus when you can, and discover the difference a Clark education can make.

At Clark, our students:

  • Learn from a faculty of distinguished academics and researchers
  • Can obtain graduate degrees in compelling and marketable fields

Like you, we see higher education as an investment — you invest in us and we invest in you. Clark University graduates work for great organizations and attend some of the best graduate schools in the world. We’re incredibly proud that we’re preparing them for long, productive careers and lives of real consequence. Learn more about the return on a Clark education.
