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 PLC hosts a parents reception during Family Weekend

The Daisey family"Roanoke College was the perfect choice for our daughter Emma, who graduated in May 2020. Seeing the positive impact the faculty and staff had on her college career, our son James was eager to be a Maroon as well. The College’s goal to enable students to Live on Purpose as whole persons is truly delivered. The approachability of faculty, smaller class environment, and a multitude of easily accessible resources made Roanoke an easy decision for James. And the numerous opportunities for study and research within and beyond any course of study clearly exemplify the benefits of a liberal arts education at Roanoke College."
