PLLC does more than teach leadership to students. We also offer public events through the Lougheed College Lectures.

Hosted on Monday evenings throughout the school year, each session focuses on an element of leadership and is presented from an expert in that area. Topics include ethics, diversity, and communication. Each lecture is held on the University of Alberta campus at the Tory Lecture Theatre. 

If you dream of becoming a leader or want to inspire your current leadership role, come to the Lougheed College Lectures.

What is PLLC? 

Collaborative, compassionate, creative, and committed to “uplifting the whole people” – the students, staff, and faculty of the Peter Lougheed Leadership College (PLLC) embrace a community minded approach to leadership studies. The college offers a range of learning and development opportunities for U of A students including the Lougheed College Lecture Series (open to all students and members of the public) and the two-year Certificate in Interdisciplinary Leadership Studies. Among the many topics covered by the mix of guest lecturers and U of A experts, students who connect with the college can expect to explore subjects including intersectionality, change, evidence-based-decision making, communication, and ethics.

With a certificate program for students, and free public lectures, PLLC is enriching leadership in Edmonton and beyond.

PLLC's approach to teaching leadership stems from three roots: connect, grow, lead

The Origins of PLLC 

The PLLC was created in honour of the legacy of Peter Lougheed. Peter Lougheed was an active student of the University of Alberta, participating in many campus events with various organizations. After earning a Bachelor of Arts in 1951 and a law degree in 1952, he was eventually elected the 10th Premier of Alberta in 1971. Peter Lougheed's passion for elevating his community and leading positive change inspire our program.
