The purpose of the Family Council (which consists of families from each of the classes), as written in its  Bylaws, is to provide a liaison between the College and the parents of Maryville College students, and to encourage family engagement in the activities and programs of Maryville College.  Listening to concerns of other families and sharing these concerns with College administrators is a primary responsibility of Family Council members. Other responsibilities include helping plan campus events for families, making recommendations for publications, leading efforts for the annual family fund-drive and advising the College on issues and activities relevant to student life.

Vice President and Dean of Students, Dr. Melanie Tucker, 865.981.8111,

Have Concerns or Questions?

College administrators are available to answer any question and work to remedy any problem you, as a parent or family member, may have. However, if you would prefer to speak to a family member first, Family Council members are just a receiver away.
