President's Leadership Class

The President's Leadership Class (PLC) is a program for students who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in academics and extracurricular endeavors.

In 2001, PLC began as a program to identify leadership potential in incoming students to Oklahoma City University. Since then, PLC has produced more than 300 campus leaders and successful professionals.

As of 2021, PLC, is offered to first-year students awarded with the American Indian Scholarship, the Bishop Scholarship, the Clara Luper Scholarship, the OCU Leads Scholarship, and the Methodist Leadership Scholarship.

Students involved in PLC have the opportunity to meet OCU's most talented faculty, staff, and administrators, participate in community service projects, and meet distinguished university guest speakers.

  • In the fall and spring semesters of their first year, scholarship recipients will enroll in the PLC course which meets once per week, on Tuesdays 1:00 - 1:50 p.m. This involves planning for and participating in various extracurricular activities.
  • During their first year, scholarship recipients will reside in on-campus housing designated as the PLC Living/Learning Community and benefit from enriching co-curricular activities that complement academic coursework. Please note: the OCU Leads Scholarship does not cover room and board costs.
  • Once in their sophomore, junior, and senior years, scholarship recipients are asked to attend a continuing education workshop each fall and spring semester and are invited to take part in the service projects each fall and spring semesters alongside the current PLC class.
