Honors College Parent and Family Leadership Circle

The Honors College Parent and Family Leadership Circle (PLC) is at the forefront of 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 and Oregon State 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 $2,500 gift in support of need-based differential tuition scholarship.

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 our quarterly family newsletters and our summer send-off events in the Bay Area, Salem and Portland. This year, the HC Parent and Family Leadership Circle will meet on:

  • November 6, 2020 - Insight into the role of research universities in confronting health crises with OSU Dean of the College of Public Health and Human Sciences Javier Nieto
  • February 5, 2021 - Insight into the future of Oregon State University with OSU President F. King Alexander
  • May 7, 2021 (tentative) - Insight into research with Honors College faculty mentors

All meetings take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. and will be conducted over Zoom until the full resumption of on-campus activities.

Inspire the next generation of leaders. Gifts in support of Honors College need-based differential tuition scholarships can be made online at here at any time.
