Here are some frequently asked questions for the summit. Please don't hesitate to contact us at cwl@nationalcampusleaders.org.

Nomination Process

Q: Who is eligible for nomination?
A: Nominees must be current student body presidents or students in a campus leadership role through student government or another student organization.

Q: What is your selection criteria?
A: We will look at the quality of the submitted nomination and have a strong preference for student body presidents and their mentees to attend this conference. We hope to achieve broad representation of varying institutions across the nation.

Q: Is this limited to women?
A: Eligibility is not limited by gender identity, though the program is heavily designed for women student leaders. Campus Women Lead seeks to celebrate women student body presidents and empower students who aspire to become student body president.

Q: How many students can my school send?
A: Due to limited capacity, we may have to limit participation to no more than two students per institution, including the current student body president and a mentee or other nominee from that institution.

Q: How many students can I nominate?
A: However many you want! But keep in mind we can only select two per academic institution.

Q: What happens after I nominate a student?
A: We will reach out to the student so that the student can accept the nomination and complete the self-nomination form.

Q: Does it “look bad” if I nominate myself?
A: No! Ultimately, we’ll need each prospective attendee to complete the self-nomination form.

Selection & Participation

Q: What happens if I am selected to attend?
A: We will send a formal invitation to you along with a registration link. That link will allow you to pay the registration fee and access an internal directory of attendees, post to a messaging board, and select breakout session and workshops you wish to attend.

Q: What costs are involved?
A: Attendees must pay a nominal fee of $55 to attend, which covers all meals, materials, and direct program costs. Attendees are also responsible for arranging and paying for their own travel and housing during CWL.

A: We recommend that you arrive in Washington, D.C., by 6 pm on Friday, February 17th, and depart after 3pm on Sunday, February 19th.
