Parents Leadership Council

The Parents Leadership Council (PLC) is a dedicated group of Willamette University parents who volunteer to help advance the mission of the College of Liberal Arts. Since 2004, the PLC has grown steadily and is involved in a number of activities. In recent years, PLC members have made welcome calls to new parents, assisted with student and alumni career networking, helped us organize events and served as a focus group for University leaders. PLC members make leadership gifts for the College of Liberal Arts, providing resources across campus to enhance student academic opportunities.
