National Council of College Leaders

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.

Thanks to the support of Shire Pharmaceuticals and Janssen, youth leaders serve as advocates for patients through local and national campaigns. The NCCL also creates new fundraising opportunities, while supporting and increasing support for existing programs. Members develop leadership skills and prepare for even larger roles as advocates for people living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

In addition, CCFA and its youth leadership also provides support for college students who are living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. When a student goes off to college, they are living on their own for the first time and will face many new challenges including new doctors, new teachers, new friends, as well as new food choices. At most campuses across the country, there is little support to help these students. As a result, CCFA created an online community to close this gap.
