The PLP Weekly

Your one (wintry) stop for everything PLP!

Important Announcement!

It is with great pride and pleasure that we share with you the promotion and appointment of Brian Larson to the role of Associate Dean of Students. Brian has been serving the President’s Leadership Program for over a decade in both Associate Director and Director roles. He has provided tremendous leadership to this program and overseen its considerable growth over his tenure. In his new role as Associate Dean of Students, Brian will continue to provide guidance and leadership to the President’s Leadership Program as well as overseeing Counseling & Health Services and the Center for Honor Enrichment & Community Standards.

Although continuing to provide oversight and leadership to the program, Brian will be stepping back from the day-to-day operations. Although he is always available to students if you need assistance, please direct program related questions to your staff guide or contact the Associate Director, Katie Johnston at or 757-594-7869. Additionally, we always love having you in the office, so please drop in if there is anything you need.
