RU Family Council is a new, representative group of Rutgers New-Brunswick parents and families. RU Family Council will act as an advisory group working in close collaboration with the Division of Student Affairs to help families foster a positive and enduring connection to the university. We will help welcome new families into the Rutgers community and facilitate programs and volunteer opportunities that enrich the experience of families and students.
