Quick Tips for Leading Your StudentCPT Chapter

Now is a great time to begin or continue planning your chapter’s meetings, community service events and other special activities. If your chapter is facing any challenges scheduling, promoting or conducting your activities, please contact your chapter account representative or send an email to info@thecpt.org.

The CPT staff aims to meet with chapter officers and/or advisors each month to see how the CPT National Office can help your chapter function at a high level. Chapter officers or advisers who have not been a part of these discussions, but would like to, should send an email to info@thecpt.org.

Based on these discussions with your fellow chapters, we have compiled ideas for activities you can do to help your chapter excel.

Community Service

  • Host a fundraiser that benefits a non-profit organization
  • Make “Gobble Grams” and sell them; then donate the proceeds to charity
  • Host a blood drive through the American Red Cross
  • Help build a home through Habitat for Humanity
  • Find a volunteer opportunity through VolunteerMatch.org; DoSomething.org; Serve.gov; or Volunteer.gov
  • Provide blankets or backpacks with toiletries to the homeless
  • Volunteer to help patients at a children’s hospital or clinic
  • Prepare care packages for our troops
  • Host a Being a Difference Day on your campus and encourage people to be a difference to others
  • Lead or participate in a clothing or recycling drive
  • Lead or participate in a campus clean up campaign

Chapter Meetings

  • Discuss an ethics case
  • Have guest speakers share their experiences with ethical dilemmas in the workplace
  • Host a movie or TV show night and discuss some of the ethical dilemmas characters face in the movie (check to see if you need permission to show the movie to the public)
  • Discuss an ethical dilemma from a case study
  • Conduct a casual meeting to discuss ethical dilemmas faced by college students on campus. Consider having the chapter adviser present to moderate this discussion
