Support for this campaign goes to student leadership development experiences, such as Community Change Initiative funding, Community Leadership in Action projects, and PLP Student Leader Scholarships.

  • Campus Leadership Application Project (CLAP) allows student to explore an experiential way to learn about leadership in practice. First year students create teams that apply the concepts and practices of human centered design to a campus club or organization.
  • The nature of the Community Change Initiative (CCI) is to envision, develop and bring to fruition real and lasting community change in collaboration with others. The underlying purpose of the CCI is to apply and reinforce the skills and insights gained throughout PLP.
  • Our PLP Scholars board students are charged with organizing events to galvanize the cohorts both on and off campus. Every class cohort representative receives a $1,000 scholarship to further their leadership development and community engagement opportunities within our PLP community.

Our ultimate goal is to empower every student in the Pioneer Leadership Program with at least $500 to further their leadership development through conferences, internships, student-led projects, and community engagement opportunities both here and abroad.

Thank you for your generosity in helping students to innovate new ways of building community.
