Get involved! The Campus Challenge is a way for universities, colleges, and other post-secondary institutions to get involved in promoting organ donation.
Campus Challenge campaigns promote and strengthen the spirit of student involvement. Students work together—with their campus communities and local donation organizations—to spread the word about donation and provide opportunities for students, faculty, administrators, and alumni to register as organ, eye, and tissue donors.
The success of the 2009 Campus Challenge generated interest on campuses around the nation. Many institutions are continuing—or starting—campus efforts to increase donor registration. Campaign information and materials remain on our Web site to assist people starting Campus Challenges.
Campus partners (colleges, universities, and other post-secondary schools) can join and get involved in the National Donation Campus Challenge.
Campus partners participate by implementing special events, competitions, public relations and social media campaigns, and donor registry drives to raise awareness on their campuses about the importance of organ, eye, and tissue donation and encourage registration.
If you want to start a campus challenge, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for coaching and consultation on program development. Note: Current donation and transplantation statistics are available at http://optn.transplant.hrsa.gov/.
