Samford University


Parents Leadership Council

The Samford Parents Leadership Council (PLC) is a group organized to serve as a voice and an ear for all Samford parents. The PLC is a volunteer group of parents who meet twice a year, during FamilyWeekend and Step Sing, to help strengthen ties between the university and parents of current students. If you are interested in learning more about opportunities to serve on the PLC, check out the responsibilities listed below.
