Informed, Engaged, Invested

The Parents Leadership Council (PLC) is a group of deeply engaged parents who have distinguished themselves as leaders at Boston College through their annual philanthropic support of the University. Members of the PLC connect with one another and with BC’s academic and administrative leaders through special communications and campus and regional activities grounded in our Jesuit, Catholic mission.


“We’ve always supported Boston College with our time and treasure, but having our son at BC has deepened our connection even further. Faith, family, and intellectual rigor combined with a drive to serve—it all comes together in a way that makes us grateful to be engaged at this level.”

JERI ’83 AND MARK TARINI ’82, P’15, ’21

“Hosting the First-Year Sendoff for our son’s class reminded us of what we love most about BC: core Jesuit, Catholic values of educating the whole person and using the gift of knowledge to make the world a better place.”


“We’re continually inspired by the dedication of our fellow council members, and we treasure the lasting bonds we’ve forged through our work together in support of transformative educational opportunities.”

LIZANNE ’86 AND JOHN KENNEY ’87, P’18, ’22

“Our son and daughter cherished the depth of engagement with professors and the passion for service to others that’s integral to the BC experience. BC is an ideal place for young people to mature and set their course for life.”
Lizanne and John Kenney also serve as Board of Regents members.
