Moms Association

at the University of Illinois

About Us


The Moms Association was created in 1923 for "the purpose of promoting the welfare and interest of the University and its students through services and open communications on campus and throughout the state."


So what does that mean to you?


When your student accepts admission to the University of Illinois, you automatically become a member of the Moms Association. (Likewise, there is a Dads Association in which fathers are automatically a member when their student accepts admission.) No dues. No signing up. Just a decision about how you want to participate.


There are a lot of ways to get involved once you become a part of the University of Illinois community as a parent and more importantly, a Moms Association member. This website is full of opportunities, and if you see something you would like to do, contact a member of the Moms Association board. 


The Illini Union Parent and Family Programs Office teams up with the Dads and Moms Associations to provide you helpful information about the University, about dealing with the transition of your student coming to college, and much more! The Moms Association wants you to enjoy these years as your student gets his or her education at the U of I, and wants to provide you with the resources and opportunities to make it the best university experience it can be for your student and your family.
