Inside Spelman: Giving That Goes Beyond Tuition -- Read More


As Co-Chairs of the Spelman College Parents and Family Association (SCPFA), we are pleased to welcome new and returning students and parents to Spelman College.  The mission of the SCPFA is to promote a dynamic relationship between Spelman College and its parents.  As members of this association, we play a major role in ensuring that our daughters receive a world-class educational experience that prepares them for a future of greatness.

The SCPFA is divided into seven regions, with each being led by Regional Co-Coordinators. Being a member of the SCPFA grants you access a monthly electronic newsletter with the latest news and events at Spelman College as well as other engagement opportunities. The four pillars of our association are to encourage giving to the College, donate gently used or new business attire for My Sister’s Closet, assist the Office of Career Planning and Development by offering career opportunities, and to arrange for student care packages.

If you would like to help lead our efforts and become a Regional Co-Coordinator, email us at with a statement of interest.

This year, the SCPFA hopes to assist you in understanding the Spelman community and urge you to become actively involved. We look forward to working with you and having a wonderful academic year!
