Honors College Parent and Family Leadership Circle

There will be a virtual informational session about the HC Parent and Family Leadership Circle following the Honors College family event on Friday, November 19. Look for more details soon!

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. Over 38% 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. We will also hold an informational session immediately following the Honors College Fall Family event on Friday, November 19th. Past initiatives inspired by the PLC include our quarterly family newsletters and our summer send-off events for incoming students. The HC Parent and Family Leadership Circle meets 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 2021-2022 academic year are scheduled for:

  • Fall Meeting - Friday, November 12, noon-1:00 p.m.
  • Winter Meeting - Friday, February 11, noon-1:00 p.m.
  • Spring Meeting - Friday, April 29, noon-1:00 p.m. (tentative)

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.
