Apply for President's Leadership Program

April 3, 2014

The President’s Leadership Program (PLP) is currently accepting applications for the 2014-2015 academic year. Applications are due online April 9.

President’s Leadership Program

PLP is a comprehensive leadership development experience comprised of three year-long academic and experiential courses focused on developing active, informed citizens who practice service-oriented leadership. PLP offers distinct academic experiences - meaning students can apply for and be selected to participate into different courses each year at CSU. PLP also offers a minor in leadership studies with successful completion of all 6 core courses and an additional 4 credits of research, internship, or advanced practicum. No minimum GPA or SAT are required; selection is based on a student’s appreciation for learning, intellectual curiosity, experiences and potential contributions to peer learning.

Elise Eppard, senior at Colorado State University and representative for the President’s Leadership Program, is a communication studies major and Business Administration minor.

“Leaders can really be anyone. By being in PLP, you’re not just gaining a leadership experience; you’re gaining a sense of self which is going to benefit your leadership," said Eppard, who applied spring semester of her freshman year.

Javier Lopez, first-year student and representative of the President’s Leadership Program, left a gang when he was in high school. Lopez excelled his senior year of high school, became student body president, and was the master of ceremonies at his graduation.

“I saw PLP as a way to figure out my leadership philosophy. Life doesn’t wait. It’s up to you to be the change you want to see in the world. For me, President’s Leadership Program gives me the tools and resources to be that change,” he said.
