Scholar Expectations

PLC Students

Academic Requirements

During the first-year, President’s Leadership Council students will enroll in two designated courses. The fall semester course, UNIV 1231 - first-year experience course, is required of all first-year students at Texas Woman’s University. The UNIV 1231 course for PLC students provides a special focus on leadership. In the spring, students enroll in a second course to enhance their leadership and/or world view. To date, courses have included Professional Presentation Strategies and Global Issues and Trends.

All scholarship recipients must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average.


Each semester students will be required to complete a minimum of one designated service activity. The PLC Student Organization Service Chair will organize various hands-on and sponsored activities. Additionally, PLC students serve as volunteers for important campus events throughout their time at the university. The incoming class of students will develop and organize the PLC service requirement for the spring semester of their first year.

The President’s Leadership Council Student Organization provides opportunities for service and engagement. Within the organization, students are matched with cluster groups which allow for connections across the various cohorts and specific to majors.  Students are encouraged to actively participate in the student organization.
