Parent Leadership Council

The Parent Leadership Council (PLC) is a leadership giving society exclusively for parents. Members are strategic partners of Parents Fund staff, advocating for Columbia College, serving as ambassadors for the Parents Fund and connecting with fellow parents. The PLC offers exclusive benefits for all members, including special recognition, exclusive events and communications curated for the parent community.


The generosity of the PLC helps sustain the College’s longstanding tradition of excellence. Parents may join as Members or Dean’s Circle Members with cumulative annual giving to the Parents Fund of $10,000 or $25,000, respectively.
