Florida Tech created the Parent Leadership Council (PLC) in recognition of the integral part that parents play in supporting their students financially and emotionally as they pursue their education. The PLC reflects the importance of families in the university's success. We ask members of this select group to become investors in the enterprise, advisors to the President, and supporters of one of the world's greatest STEM universities.
Members contribute annually to the Panther Fund or other programs at the Galaxy Society level or more. The average contribution of PLC members is about $2,500 annually. Some give capstone gifts before their student graduates to support area or program of their choice.
PLC members often host events, student receptions and Send-Off parties, for students and prospective students in their areas. Members They often provide mentorships for current students and internships and externships in their businesses, as well.
