Parent's Leadership Council

Parents Leadership Council

The Parents Leadership Council (PLC) consists of current and past parents of undergraduate students from across the country. With a sincere dedication to maintaining and expanding the opportunities and prestige of American University, these volunteers welcome new AU families, raise funds to support the university, host and attend university events, and promote the overall success of AU students through the advancement of AU's educational mission. They also form a core of financial support for the university's initiatives by committing to give $1,000 or more annually to the campus priority that means the most to them.


The President's Circle

The President's Circle is AU's premier donor recognition society. PLC members who are interested can join the President's Circle by increasing their yearly contribution to $2,500 or more.
