The Clarkson University Leadership Corps recently contributed $1,400 to the Canton-Potsdam Hospital Foundation's "Constructing Healthier Communities" campaign, toward construction of the new Center for Cancer Care.
The donation, the proceeds from last spring’s "lapsit" event, was recently presented to the Hospital, and representatives from the Corps toured the new Center.
The Leadership Corps is an organization made up of students passionate about extending their leadership skills through team building and communication activities. The members strive to excel above and beyond, creating a better community through recognizing the need for philanthropy events on the Clarkson campus and within the community.
Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
