Congratulations once again on earning a spot in the Presidents Leadership Class. You are entering into a very special community that is here to support you through your career at the University of Colorado Boulder and beyond. You have committed to becoming a better leader, a better student and a better citizen in your community through the curriculum and programming offered by the Presidents Leadership Class.
Over the next four years you will take four PLC courses and one capstone course (if you choose) culminating in a Leadership Studies Minor, undertake and participate in two Applied Leadership Experiences, enjoy two Experiential Weekends, serve your community with over 80 hours of service work, and grow through your participation many community events.
However, before you get started on this journey, you need to be ready for the very first day!
First, please fill out the following form ASAP : PLCer Contact Information
Additionally, you will soon be registering for classes with an advisor. You, nor your advisor, can register you for PRLC 1810. I will do that this summer. Please leave the following windows of time open in your schedule so you can attend your PLC lecture and recitation:
- Tuesday: 6-7:50pm (lectures)
- Thursday: 3:30-7:30pm - try to leave entire span open so you can be placed in either the earlier (3:30-5:30) or later (5:30-7:30) recitation without time conflicts.
