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.

Family Weekend

The PLC hosts a parents reception during Family Weekend

FAMILLY"During our college visits with our daughter Emma, and now with our son James, we have always felt most welcome at Roanoke, more so than any other institution. Events were designed to explain and display the benefits of a liberal arts school.  The size of the school and importance of undergraduate research were shown to be valuable assets.  Emma’s time at Roanoke has not disappointed.  She’s found the faculty approachable and understanding, and pre-law advising has her on the path to law school in the fall of 2020.  James is planning for Roanoke early admission decision this fall."
