Parents Executive Committee

Bowdoin’s Parents Executive Committee (PEC) is made up of parents of current students and parents of graduates who volunteer to support the Parents Fund and the College community. Students from around the globe come to Bowdoin and form a diverse, vibrant, and strong community so do our parents.

The success of the Parents Fund is a direct result of its committed volunteers. Parents respond to one another best through conversation and through shared experiences of their students.
