Hi! Welcome to our page!
The mission of The Community Outreach Team (COT) is to help CIA students connect to their community on campus, the greater Cleveland community, and the world, by giving back to others in need. There are 4 components to our team: community service events, on-campus programs, Moments of Gratitude (MOG) around campus, and fundraising. COT is led by a group of student leaders who are passionate about helping others. Interested in joining COT?

If you're interested in a collaboration or partnership, contact our Outreach Coordinator and VP, Mandy Schulien, at email@example.com.
