Sweet Briar Families ~ Your SBC


Sweet Briar is rich in her traditions and history. Just as the College encourages student engagement at all levels, we also welcome families to have their own “Sweet Briar Experience.” Each year parents give their time, energy, and resources significantly impacting the entire Sweet Briar community.

Sweet Briar College began as an enduring gift from Indiana Fletcher Williams in honor of her daughter, Daisy, and the strong tradition of parent giving continues. The Parent Steering Committee is a volunteer organization that promotes parent involvement in the College through financial support, networking with fellow parents, and a collective voice to promote the College’s mission. The Parent Steering Committee is vital to Sweet Briar, and every student benefits from the stewardship and generosity of this special group of parents.


“On behalf of the Parent Steering Committee, welcome to the Sweet Briar family and to this wonderful community!  There is great excitement ahead for you as you bring your daughter to campus for her first year.  Please know we are here as a resource for you throughout the year.
