As a current PLC scholar, you have many resources at your disposal. On this page you can access our current course requirements, the current ALE handbook, Deep Dive excuse email request, Alumni mentor profiles, office hour sign-ups, etc. If you do not see what you need, you are always welcome to come into the PLC office to speak to the professional staff about what you need to be successful in PLC, at CU Boulder and as you get ready to leave university.
We have relaxed our dress code from our history of suits and ties. We know that you will not necessarily be wearing a suit in your future career, and therefore, we respect your desire to dress in the professional code for your career area. We will let you express this choice most of the time. Your choice of business casual dress must still be pressed/ironed, respectable, represent yourself with integrity, and cannot be distracting from the class/event at which you are present.
However, we also know that first impressions are based on, at least in part, how you appear when you walk through the door at your first interview, internship, informational interview, fellowship, job, etc. Therefore, we will ask you to don formal professional attire at the following times:
PRLC Course Guest Lectures
PRLC Course Formal Presentations
Presentations to the PLC Board of Advocates (unless instructed otherwise)
PLC CORPS Events - Taste of PLC, etc. (unless instructed otherwise)
With this in mind, please purchase, borrow, trade, and/or somehow bring at least one formal business outfit for the above-mentioned times. You will make formal presentations in all of you PLC courses throughout the four years.
We will be purchasing PLC polo shirts that can be worn to represent yourself and the program at other events, Deep Dive trips, PLC Interview volunteering, other service days. We will make these available to you when ready.
If you have questions about the PLC Dress Code, please email the professional staff and/or faculty (See Emails for Professional Staff/Faculty tab). Also, please read the following articles or search for evidence on your own about professional dress, how it is perceived, who can do what, what are the new trends, what is ok and not ok, etc.
