Oklahoma State University has named 118 incoming freshmen to its President’s Leadership Council (PLC) for the 2014-2015 school year. PLC is a freshmen scholarship and academic leadership program that emphasizes the importance of leadership and service throughout life.

Students in the President’s Leadership Council complete a year-long class to develop skills including problem solving, self-assessment, planning and implementing change, and team building and maintenance. They also coordinate a leadership conference for high school seniors and complete 40 hours of volunteer service.

PLC students have the option to attend a leadership study abroad international study that will take them to Greece and Italy in May 2015.

“To meet the challenges of the 21st century, Oklahoma needs to develop creative, ethical, inclusive and effective leaders,” said Stephen Haseley, director, President’s Leadership Council. “The council will meet this challenge through an academic course of instruction, scholarship, service-learning field experiences, leadership conference development and implementation for high school seniors, and international study. Like previous participants in this program, this year’s members will enhance their understanding of ethics and leadership and make positive contributions to OSU, the state of Oklahoma, the nation, and the world.”
