As PBA parents, your opinions, your ideas and your concerns are our main priority. You are not only members of our family but also partners in the educational process.
This vision is the foundation of the Parents Council, an initiative that strives to provide effective parent-university interaction through events and services, as well as publications.
There are many ways to get involved in PBA life. Support your student with e-mails, phone calls, and in prayer and being aware of the many student support services the University offers.
