MBC Parents and Families

Whether you are a seasoned Mary Baldwin parent or new to the MBC family, these pages will help you find information you may need during your student’s college experience.


Parent Association

When your student begins her journey at MBC, you become a member of the Parent Association, whose mission is to involve parents in activities that promote the college, enrich the college experience, foster career opportunities, and support the college’s financial needs. The Parent Council is a select group of parents who  represent the entire Parent Association.
