Parent Leadership Council

The goal of the Roanoke College Parent Leadership Council is to give parents the opportunity to enhance the value of their children's education through advocacy, advisement and philanthropy.

  • Advocacy: Parent Leadership Council members are ambassadors for the College. They represent Roanoke College to prospective students and families. They encourage the success of students after graduation through participation in career development programs. They host events for the Roanoke College community, and they look for opportunities to participate in College events both on and off campus.
  • Advertisement: Council members meet twice a year to learn about the College's activities, policies, programs, concerns, and plans for future development. In turn, the Council provides parents with a way to share their observations, suggestions, or concerns about the College and its programs, plans and student life issues.
  • Philanthropy: Council members support the College with their own leadership gifts, and encourage other parents to help the College reach its annual goal by giving to the Roanoke Fund.

"The education our son has received these past two years at Roanoke College has been diverse, transformative, and inspiring. Stephen has been able to double major in computer science and business while also taking courses in art history and spanish. The mentorship program the College provides has given Stephen the opportunity to be paired with a professional in the community who works in the IT department at Carilion Clinic. Carilion Clinic is an integrated health care organization that provides care for nearly one million Virginians. Stephen has a job on campus as a programmer and is President of the Board Game Club. We knew that Roanoke College would be the perfect fit for our son as soon as we walked onto the beautiful campus. The solid liberal arts education coupled with the plethora of athletic and social activities provides a well-rounded experience for students. We are proud to be part of the Roanoke family!"
