The Parents Leadership Council

A Community of
Difference Makers

Northeastern University established the Parents Leadership Council (PLC) to serve, engage, and understand our parent community. We strive to enhance the experience of our parent community through individual and collective outreach, regional events, and engagement of parents as potential co-op employers, and as philanthropic partners.

 

Mission Statement

The Parents Leadership Council (PLC) is an active, diverse volunteer group of Northeastern parent ambassadors who steer community outreach, provide feedback on university activities and communications, and contribute philanthropic support. PLC members have a common interest in strengthening experiential learning opportunities for students, sharing experiences and perspectives, and welcoming new parents into the Northeastern family.
