Family of the Year
Each year, during Parent & Family Weekend, Parent & Family Services celebrates a parent or family member that has been an inspiration to their student. These parents not only go above and beyond for their student, but they also support the University of Memphis community through volunteering, serving on committees, and being an ambassador for the university.

Parent & Family Services invites students to nominate parents, family members or guardians whose lives have been an inspiration to their students and others as the 2021 Family of the Year.
