I want to talk to my student’s professor(s).

It’s common for parents to want to reach out on behalf of their students, especially to professors during the academic year. However, one of the biggest points of learning in college is self-advocacy, which is why we strongly discourage parents from reaching out directly to professors. College students are learning to take responsibility for their academic path, and part of that is reaching out to professors regarding their classes. If your student is having a hard time academically (or in other areas), encourage them to reach out to the available resources on campus for support.
