Millennium Campus Benefits
You can give your students an advantage and be recognized as a cutting edge, global institution; here is a sampling of services and benefits offered to Millennium Campuses for the 2016-2017 academic year (July 2016-June 2017):
Guaranteed admission and four complimentary tickets for student leaders (market rate is $250 per delegate) to the annual Millennium Campus Conference, giving student leaders the opportunity to network with peer leaders from over 100 campuses and 50 nations worldwide. The package includes a special discounted lodging offer as well. MCC15 was hosted at United Nations Headquarters. MCC16 was hosted at Howard University in Washington D.C. Previous participants in the convening include U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Nobel Peace Prize Winner Leymah Gbowee, MCN Advisors Dr. Paul Farmer and John Legend, and more than 100 leading non-profits, corporations, and government agencies. For institutions that formally sign on after MCC16, student leaders will be allocated additional tickets for MCC17 taking place in fall 2017.
Priority application and four free spots in the Millennium Fellowship (market rate is $950 per student) for student leaders to participate in the Spring 2016 Program. Millennium Fellows meet throughout the semester in their respective hub sites (in cities like Boston, Miami, New York City, and Washington DC) to share best practices. Fellows in other locations can join in for programming online. Millennium Fellows go through an accredited** curriculum (three-credit spring semester course; Fellows can choose to pay extra for credit) that enables undergraduate student leaders to develop values, management skills, and pathways to impact upon graduation. Fellows are each tasked and supported in sharing lessons learned with 500 peers, creating a ripple effect across campus from the Fellowship.
Two VIP Tickets for University Administrators and/or Faculty ($1200 value) to participate in MCC16 in Washington D.C. (or MCC17 in fall 2017), with special access to an Executive Track and VIP event to network with peers equally passionate about higher education leadership in this sector.
Campus Spotlight: We spotlight Millennium Campuses in our programs and publications, which we share with partners and colleagues from the private sector, the US government, and leading NGOs. We also ensure that Millennium Campuses can regularly share research, events, and other relevant information on global engagement with leaders through our global listserv and social media channels.
Global Campaigns: Student leaders in classes and campus organizations can tune in for monthly global webinars throughout the fall by thematic area, as part of award-winning global campaigns aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Connect with thought leaders and peers across the globe online.
Customized opportunities: From speaking engagements and customized boot camps (on managing teams, creating an MOU with your community partner, and more) on campus to recommendations of national organizations for your student leaders to connect with, we are available for additional/alternative engagement opportunities.
