VAW Chapter Levels

Every year, VAW chapters work hard to bring medical, dental and veterinary care as well as implement sustainable development projects hand in hand with local staff and communities around the world. We always talk about how important it is for development projects to be sustainable and have a lasting impact beyond the time that teams are in country. Equally as important is for the chapters themselves to structure their leadership in a way that they last for many years and provide future students with the opportunities for professional development and cultural exchange. Therefore, we would like to recognize chapters who excel from year to year in a number of categories, including sustainable leadership and a strong on campus presence through meeting deadlines and completing pre-trip preparation. There are four levels that a VAW chapter can obtain: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
