Parents Council

The Parents Council provides a forum for the interchange of ideas and information between parents, cadets and Institute officials; creates an organization to formulate and administer plans and projects; brings the parents of cadets into closer association with VMI; aids in the growth and development of the VMI Foundation; and assists the Institute in providing for the welfare and development of cadets. Members of the Council are selected from parents of cadets in the upper three classes.

The Parents Council is overseen by the President and the Vice President-Elect. There are four main committees in the Council: Activities, Communications, Society of Friends and Family and Recruiting.
