PUEBLO – Fourteen students have been named to the 2011-2012 President’s Leadership Program (PLP) at Colorado State University – Pueblo. The students were selected by a committee of campus and community board members and students from the PLP program.

Currently in its eleventh year, the PLP program is one of 11 higher education institutions to participate in the Colorado Leadership Alliance, a consortium of comprehensive leadership education programs at undergraduate institutions across Colorado. Through shared resources and collaborative efforts, CLA aims to develop the next generation of Colorado's leaders.

PLP develops and trains emerging leaders at CSU-Pueblo through a four – year academic leadership program focused on academic and experiential learning. Scholars are given opportunities to obtain leadership experience through mentoring, internships, and presentations by leaders in various fields from government and education to the service sectors. PLP students also earn a minor in leadership studies.
Eligible candidates are graduating high school seniors who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher and who display leadership potential, intellectual curiosity, and a commitment to something outside one’s self. PLP challenges participants to identify and engage in leadership issues facing Southern Colorado.
