Excellence in Leadership, Service and Scholarship

The President’s Leadership Council (PLC) was established during the 1977-78 academic year to recognize students who exemplified well-rounded excellence through leadership, academic achievement, extracurricular activities and service to the university and community.

Current PLC members serve the university by acting as a student advisory group to the president — extending the role of the presidency through their voice, contributions and values. This select group of 35 student ambassadors also represent UCF at various presidential events, including appreciation receptions, university Board of Trustees’ and state Board of Governors’ functions, commencement and in the President’s Suite at campus sporting events.
