Parent Leadership Council

The Parent Leadership Council (PLC) is an advocacy and advisory board of dedicated DU parents and families who want to take an active role in advancing the academic and student experience at the University of Denver. Members serve as ambassadors on behalf of the University helping foster a sense of community among their peers, with the ultimate goal of creating a philanthropic community among current and past DU parents. PLC families lead by example, with personal contributions and assist University Leadership and staff in building relationships among philanthropically inclined families within their networks. The PLC strives to enable the best possible opportunities for all University of Denver students through private philanthropic support.

Parent Leadership Council members are the greatest asset and advocate for parent and family philanthropy at the University of Denver. Support from the PLC makes up a significant portion of the Parent & Family Fund each year, and helps creates the connections for future years of parent leadership volunteers.

We welcome your involvement.
