The National Council of College Leaders (NCCL) works to increase awareness of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis through youth-focused advocacy and fundraising. Youth leaders become advocates for patients through local and national campaigns. Council members also identify new fundraising opportunities on their campus and are responsible for meeting a minimum fundraising goal each year, while supporting and increasing support for existing programs. NCCL members will develop leadership skills and prepare for even larger roles as advocates for people with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
Unify youth leaders invested in enhancing and strengthening our mission—to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.
