The Parent & Family Advisory Council (PFAC) is comprised of parents of current UNCG undergraduate students that meet bi-annually to discuss current issues and ideas concerning the UNCG community. PFAC also assists in planning events, contributes to publications for UNCG families, helps raise funds for special projects, recruits new members to the Parent & Family Association, and serves as presenters at SOAR and other UNCG events.
