Saluki Family Association

Big things are within reach.

Welcome From The Saluki Family Association! Main Content

Family involvement and support is extremely important to students as they pursue their college degree. At SIU Carbondale, we want family members to share in the Saluki experience by not only becoming involved in activities on campus, but by learning about issues their students may be going through, remaining aware of important dates, etc. 

So how can you become more involved in your student’s college experience? By becoming involved with the Saluki Family Association. Families that attend New Student Orientation with their student receive a complimentary membership into the Saluki Family Association for their student’s first year at SIU Carbondale. 

Saluki Family Association and SIU Alumni Association Partnership

For families who would like to continue their connection to the University after their student’s first year, the SIU Alumni Association and the Saluki Family Association have teamed up to better serve students, families, and alumni of Southern Illinois University . This partnership increases communication between families and Southern, provides on and off-campus opportunities to families to get involved, and continues to provide the availability of various local and national business discounts.

After your initial year in the Saluki Family Association, we encourage you to join the SIU Alumni Association to continue to be a part of the SIU family!
