Get Involved

As the parent of a current USF student, we invite you to become an integral part of the university by joining our Parent Leadership Council (PLC), or by becoming a member of one of our Regional Councils.

The Parent Leadership Council

Parents Leadership Council membership levels
The Parent Leadership Council (PLC) is a philanthropic society that supports the university's strategic priorities.


As a member of the PLC, you will have access to top university leadership with the opportunity to meet the university president to offer your feedback and suggestions. As an important part of the USF family, we invite you to play a key role as an advocate for the university as we strive to educate minds and hearts to change the world. All Parent Leadership Council gifts will be designated to the Parents Fund, unless otherwise directed elsewhere at the request of the donor.
