Your support provides PLA scholars with unique experiences to learn and achieve true leadership abilities. The PLA is committed to preparing students to lead with integrity through passionate and talented servant leadership. Students have the opportunity to connect with and be mentored by BGSU faculty, staff and key leaders so they can achieve excellence both inside and outside the classroom.
The PLA has been a great support system throughout my college career. PLA has provided infinite resources for the betterment of my education. I am grateful for the opportunity to gain leadership experience and foster spaces on campus for other students of color to excel.
