Each of the class members receive a $1,000 scholarship, room scholarship and enrollment in a leadership class that is offered exclusively to PLC students. During the second year, students receive a $1,000 scholarship, a sponsored trip to Washington, D.C., and enrollment in the PLC class.

During the third and fourth years of the program, students serve as mentors for the first and second year PLC members and serve in campus leadership roles, university activities and possible internships. Students may be eligible for continuing scholarships. 

SWOSU President Randy Beutler said the PLC is a four-year program offered by SWOSU to recognize outstanding leadership qualities and to encourage students in their participation as SWOSU campus leaders and future leaders in Oklahoma. The program is designed to assist in promoting and developing effective academic, social and leadership skills, which is accomplished through direct participation in campus activities, seminars, guest speakers, recruitment and alumni efforts.  Todd Boyd heads up the PLC program at SWOSU.

SWOSU offers 15 nationally-accredited academic programs—the most among Oklahoma’s regional universities. SWOSU has two campus locations and offers nearly 100 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, including a doctorate in pharmacy. Additional information is available at www.swosu.edu.
