Prairie Stars Family Association (PSFA)
The Prairie Stars Family Association (PSFA) was founded in the Fall of 2015 to support UIS parents, guardians, and family members by promoting shared experiences among UIS family members and help them feel more connected to UIS and their students.
PSFA members will work closely with the Office of New Student Orientation and Parent Relations (NSOPR) to meet these goals by assisting with the planning and coordination of events sponsored by the Office of New Student Orientation & Parent Relations including Family Weekend, parent panels during summer orientation, and socials before the Welcome BBQ at the beginning of Launch Week (August Orientation).
Membership in the Prairie Stars Family Association is FREE to the parents, legal guardians, and family members of currently enrolled UIS students. To join PSFA as a general member complete the online form or email the Office of New Student Orientation and Parent Relations at UISOrientation@uis.edu.
