Fourteen incoming freshmen have been named to the 2012-2013 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 12th year, the PLP program is one of 10 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, service, and experiential learning.
