Honors College Parent and Family Leadership Circle

The Honors College Parent and Family Leadership Circle (PLC) leads the HC's efforts to engage student families and create an accessible and equitable college community. Members of the PLC meet quarterly with Honors College leadership to learn more about the university, network with other honors family members and provide feedback about the family experience. The PLC also plays a vital role in ensuring that all qualified students, regardless of financial means, can fully participate in the HC experience by making a suggested $2,500 gift in support of need-based differential tuition scholarships. About 40% of Honors College students have financial need, and 20% are high need. Differential tuition scholarships are often essential in making sure those students have the opportunity to fully succeed in the HC.

To learn more about becoming a PLC member, contact Kellie Parker with the OSU Foundation at [email protected] or 541-207-6182.  Past initiatives inspired by the PLC include quarterly family newsletters and summer send-off events for incoming students and families. The HC Parent and Family Leadership Circle meets on the Corvallis campus three times each year, once in fall, winter and spring terms, and sponsors informational events for all HC family members each quarter. Meetings for the 2023-2024 academic year are scheduled for:

  • Fall Meeting - Friday, October 13, noon-1:00 p.m.
  • Winter Meeting - Friday, February 2, noon-1:00 p.m.
