About PLS

PLS is the nation's largest convening of student body presidents from college and universities. Hosted by the National Campus Leadership Council, our summit revolves around small group discussions, big speakers, and panels that enhance the depth of conversation. We've designed it in a way to provide unique opportunities to share best practices, develop meaningful relationships with peers and policymakers, and identify strategic ways to tackle big problems.

Every summit we’ve hosted has brought together new ideas, fostered friendships, and sparked the dialogue necessary for a positive impact in our communities. At PLS18, we will celebrate NCLC’s sixth birthday and look forward to celebrating this occasion together in our nation's capital.

Testimonials

"PLS was an awesome opportunity as I began my year as President of my student body. Connecting with past and present student body presidents helped equips me to lead. Also, the many topics discussed prepared me with the knowledge necessary to stay ahead of issues that were and would be affecting my campus."
MITCHELL PHELPS, UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT '16-'17
"PLS was such an inspiring experience for me-- positioned just as you're beginning your SGA term, it shows you how much impact you truly can have in your position, and connects you with people just as impassioned and excited as you are! The relationships you make are lifelong, and the experience is one I always look forward to!"
NAGELA NUKUNA, GEORGIA TECH STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT '16-'17
“I was the first Mercer SGA President to attend PLS and I immediately felt significantly more prepared heading into the year. I was exposed to a wealth of ideas, resources, and a wonderful support system. PLS helped me recognize that no matter the size of your school, you have a platform to affect your school, community, and to impact higher change.”
ELIZABETH MCKAY, MERCER UNIVERSITY STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT '16-'17
