The mission of the President’s Latino Advisory Committee is to enhance the educational success of Latino students at PCC.
The PLAC seeks to accomplish its mission by uniting the Latino community to provide support to Latino and Latina students at PCC. The PLAC is comprised of both community members and PCC faculty and staff. The PLAC welcomes involvement from the local business and civic community.
The PLAC also raises funds for scholarships. PLAC awarded five $1,000 scholarships to qualified deserving students in 2009. The funds for the scholarships were raised from PLAC committee members, PCC faculty and staff, and local businesses and friends of PCC. The PLAC plans to establish an endowment for scholarships. Applicants from this pool will also be considered for a $250 PCC Association of Latino Employees scholarship.
