Office of Student Activities

Welcome Javelinas Parents!

Our students at Texas A&M University—Kingsville are the most prestigious people here on campus, and as the Chair of the Javelina Parents’ Association (JPA), it is my job to keep it that way!  The purpose of the Parents’ Association is to keep you connected with your student(s) and enjoying the experience of being a Javelina Parent, the positive influence you contribute to the smooth transition into university life is beneficial to everyone. Best of all, this year (2018-2019) membership to the Javelina Parents’ Association is FREE!


The Texas A&M University-Kingsville Javelina Parents’ Association shall help families encourage independence while offering support to their student(s).  Javelina Parents’ Association works closely with the Office of Student Activities in supporting the University mission, programs, and activities.  The Association serves as a communication link between parents, students, faculty, and administrators of TAMUK by:

  • Encouraging parents to develop a sense of pride because their children are attending TAMUK
  • Providing parents with resources that assist in promoting college success
  • Keeping parents informed about happenings on the TAMUK campus.
