Pros

The people at PLU are extraordinarily student focused, unlike any other university with which I have had affiliation. As a result, students experience a tremendously personalized education that exploits their individual strengths and neutralizes weaknesses.

Cons

While research is rewarded, high teaching loads, coupled with the expectation to meet go beyond the norm for students make the balancing act more difficult to achieve a prominent research record.

    Leadership works well with employees though some monies may need to be allocated to leadership development of management at PLU.
