President's Leadership Council

The President's Leadership Council (PLC) meets monthly in an effort to broaden discussion and participation in shared governance and to foster collaborative processes on key administrative issues. The PLC serves in an advisory capacity to the President of the University and provides a forum for exchange of information among the administrative staff members and departments and with other University constituencies. The PLC represents the views of the administrative staff in the University's decision-making process.
