Suffolk Family Leadership Council

Suffolk ensures that student families have all the support they need. Suffolk Family Leadership Council is a great resource for Suffolk families who need advice, support, or encouragement.

Suffolk Family Leadership Council was established to serve as a proactive and on-going link between Suffolk University and the family members of our current students. Council members are not employees of the University, but are a voluntary group made up of engaged family members who advocate for the needs of families/students. They assist with advancement efforts and serve as a sounding board when the University seeks family input input regarding decisions that will share the student experience.
