Family Leadership Council

Pomona College Family Leadership Council (FLC)

Pomona College’s Family Leadership Council is a select group of dedicated parents and family members who serve as ambassadors to the Pomona family community and volunteer as well as provide philanthropic support in an effort to enhance and grow the Pomona educational experience. The FLC champions the College in transformative ways and also advocates on behalf of the parent and family community to Pomona.

FLC Members Are:

  • Ambassadors for Pomona College who are well-versed in Pomona priorities and initiatives for the purpose of sharing information and engaging past and current parents and families
  • Leaders for family programming, including helping to create engagement opportunities for parents and other family members to strengthen their connection with the College
  • Motivators for financial support to the College, thereby serving as an example for Sagehen families to contribute charitably to Pomona
