In 20 years, a CMU student could be your governor, an Allegheny College student could be your doctor, and a Pitt student could be your child’s teacher. Today's college students are tomorrow's leaders. Our mission is transforming college students to transform the world.

Through leadership development and service, 226 CCO staff give students on 83 campuses a vision to impact the world. They provide opportunities for students to serve locally and globally. They work with churches, colleges and organizations to develop men and women who will be leaders of faith in all areas of society.
