Parent Leadership Council

The mission of the Parent Leadership Council is to help Columbia College sustain its longstanding tradition of excellence. Council members are vital partners in the Dean’s efforts to create the best possible undergraduate experience. Through gifts of time, talent and resources, Council families support a range of initiatives that enable the College to continue offering exceptional opportunities to students. Council members make leadership contributions, engage in activities that foster the parent community and deepen the relationship between the College and its parent supporters.
