Note: all medical brigades include dental & public health components, this does not mean you have all three chapters














Examples: leadership experience, club participation, fundraising, team building, etc.


Goal setting is a process that allows you to think about your ideal future, and motivate yourself to turn that vision into reality. By setting sharp, clearly defined goals, you can measure and take pride in the achievement of your goals, and you’ll actually see progress in what might previously have seemed like an insurmountable task. As a part of the Campus Chairperson program, you will be asked to set a total of 3 goals. These will be used to assess your progress and eligibility for the CC Scholarship in the future.



An important aspect of the CC application process is receiving endorsements/nominations from each of the chapter presidents on your campus. Given that you CC will be representing your campus, and thus, all Chapters on your campus, it is very important that you are supported by each chapter leader on their campus. Please provide the names/email addresses of each chapter president (e.g., medical president, water president, etc.) They will then be emailed a nomination form to fill out electronically.

NOTE: please provide the contact information of the CURRENT chapter presidents.
