Parent Leadership Council

Cangas Family
Welcome Message from Our Chairs

Dear Southwestern University Parents:

We want to extend a warm welcome to you from the Parent Leadership Council (PLC)! Membership in the PLC is open to parents and guardians of all Southwestern University students. We look forward to encouraging all parents to join our efforts in supporting Southwestern University’s mission of engaging minds and transforming lives.

Through the PLC, your family has an opportunity to be part of something significant at SU and to further the Southwestern Experience with your time, talents, and financial gifts.

Members of the PLC mentor incoming families and engage with University leadership, including with the University president, at our twice-a-year in-person meetings held during Homecoming and Spring Family Weekend. These meetings, and other regional opportunities, offer an insider’s glimpse into life at Southwestern and showcase the University’s unique curricular and co-curricular offerings.

We look forward to engaging with you this year! To learn more about the PLC, please visit “About the PLC.” And, if you haven’t already, please join the SU Parents Facebook page!


All the best,

Karen Hrdlicka Cangas ’92, P’26 and Jaime Cangas P’26
Parents of Mitchell, Class of 2026
