The Parents' Leadership Council (PLC) comprises a diverse community of more than 400 BC families from all over the world who are passionate about preparing their children for leadership, service, and civic engagement.

Council members receive invitations to special events throughout the year featuring key BC leaders including University President William P. Leahy, S.J., Provost David Quigley, and others.

All members of the council have made a significant commitment to Boston College and are members of the 1863 Society's Gasson Circle, which recognizes annual gifts of $10,000 or more.

Thank you to all our current Parents' Leadership Council members. We greatly appreciate your commitment and support of the University and its students.
