The Triton Parent Leaders are a dynamic team of students who are recruited, selected, and hired to work with the Office of Parent & Family Programs.


The Application deadline for the 2014-2015 Triton Parent Leaders closed at noon on Friday, Feb. 21, 2014.

Students who are Triton Parent Leaders (TPLs) receive opportunities to build their leadership skills, to work with other student leaders and professionals from across campus, to learn more about themselves personally and develop professionally, all while getting some great perks that come along with this unique job.

Parent & Family Programs provides programs and services for the families of undergraduate students. In our office, we view the relationship with our students' parents and families as a partnership - a partnership created to help students be successful. We also know that when parents are informed, students benefit.

We inform and share programs and services with parents and families in the following ways:

  • Helping families of newly admitted undergraduate and transfer students become acquainted with UC San Diego.
  • Addressing questions students, parents & families members may have during events such as Triton Day, Orientation, and Summer Send-offs.
  • Inviting families to spend some time on campus with their UC San Diego student, learn more about campus life and have fun with annual events, such as Family Weekend and our newest Triton tradition, Siblings Weekend.
  • Communication with our families via the Parents’ Helpline, website, our annual Triton Talk newsletter, the Triton Transitions calendar for parents and families, the Triton Family Connection e-Newsletter, monthly e-newsletters, and periodic e-mail updates to families. 

The Triton Parent Leader (TPL) position assists staff in Parent & Family Programs with some of the programs and services listed above and enhances services to all parents and families.
