Welcome to the parents section of Dowling’s Web site.

It is our intention to provide you with information and resources that will help you support your child’s experience at Dowling College, both in the classroom and in the many extracurricular activities offered. Here you will find important phone numbers and lists of events that may be of interest to you and your child.

We invite all parents to become involved in our campus community and invite you to join Dowling’s Parent Advisory Council.
