Parent & Family Association Welcome


As a parent or family member of an Embry-Riddle student, we want to welcome you to the Embry-Riddle family and offer you the opportunity to join the Daytona Beach Parent and Family Association — no dues and no commitments except to stay informed! Members enjoy a 10% discount at the campus bookstore by using the code “PAR10” (does not apply to books), which can be used for on-line purchases as well.

In order to become a member, we ask that you sign up online for our Parent & Family Experience Newsletter, Once signed up, you can customize the newsletter to your personal preferences, and we will have the ability to email you announcements/alerts similar to the ones that your student receives through campus communications. Another benefit of connecting with the University through the newsletter is that you will have access to information about campus events such as Orientation, Preview Day, Family Weekend, and Open House, as well as student events, competitions, research, and awards.

Our mission is to create and foster a collaborative partnership between our parents and families and the professional staff of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Daytona Beach Campus — a relationship based on mutual respect, two-way communication, and collegiality while constantly striving to provide the best educational experience possible for our students.

The leadership of the Daytona Beach Parent and Family Association is the Parent Advisory Council (PAC), a small group of volunteers who represent the interests of all ERAU Daytona Beach parents and families in conjunction with the ERAU Parent and Family Relations team. Along with assisting with outreach to current and prospective families, members are expected to be proactive and bring new ideas to campus administration designed to improve the educational experiences of our students and their families. This work is generally done remotely although whenever possible, PAC members are encouraged to be on campus to assist at various events like Orientation, Open House, Family Weekend, and Preview Day.

Along with the PAC, we have a team of Parent Ambassadors located strategically around the United States who act as mentors and represent ERAU at various events such as Accepted Student Receptions (ASRs) and Regional Admissions Presentations (RAPs) where they help answer questions for prospective parents and students. These parent and family members donate their time at events near their residence.

If you are interested in becoming involved as a Parent Ambassador or you have any questions, please feel to contact us at 386-226-7954 or [email protected].

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
