PLLC at a Glance

The Peter Lougheed Leadership College creates inspiring opportunities to learn to make a difference. Through undergraduate programming and workshops for graduate students, university staff and faculty, and community members, PLLC mobilizes the classroom as a leadership lab to equip people with the skills they need to affect change. Our engaging lecture series convenes great conversations with insightful leaders, enriching all of us in our leadership ambitions. Since 2015, we have been undertaking this work in honor of the PLLC’s namesake, Peter Lougheed, who served as premier of Alberta from 1971-1985.
