The Central Coordinating Committee
This is the decision-making body that represents the needs and interests of the Community of Mandela Rhodes Scholars (CMRS). The CCC is involved in policy formation, fundraising, projects, and many other activities that will allow the voice of the CMRS to be represented. The CCC provides scholars with the opportunity to further develop their leadership abilities.
