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.

Congratulations! Introducing the 2020-21 PLC!

“This council was not designed to help students become leaders, but to develop existing leaders so they can amplify their success at UCF and after they graduate. These students go above and beyond in everything they do, including in their passion for the university. They are some of the most involved students at UCF, serving, leading and mentoring in a variety of capacities in clubs, organizations, councils, events and occupations across campus.”

— Interim President Thad Seymour, Jr. and Katie Glockner Seymour
