The Central College parent council represents all parents of current Central students and serves as a resource to president Mark Putnam and the senior leadership team on campus, and to prospective parents, as well.  Members also assist the college by participating in admission events such as Scholar Days and volunteering at Homecoming.  Our mission is to make sure the educational environment is maximized for each student and to offer a parent perspective in student-related matters. The group meets once each semester on campus.

To be considered for appointment to the parent council contact Peggy Fitch, vice president for student development and Title IX Coordinator at 641-628-5249 or send an email to: fitchp@central.edu.
