Co-Curricular Record Program Launched

0

Students have yet another reason to study at Algoma U. The University recently launched the new Co-Curricular Record (CCR) program which provides students with formal recognition for their extra-curricular activities. This formal recognition will help with employability and acceptance into other post-secondary institutions after graduation.

Co-Curricular Record is an official record of the University that recognizes students’ accomplishments and the experiential learning that occurs outside of the classroom, including campus-life and community engagement, volunteerism, and service leadership. The CCR is applicable to activities that support student development in venues that are not for academic credit, including, but not limited to, participation in student government, varsity athletics, student clubs or associations, and student competitions.

The purpose of the CCR is to complement students’ academic experiences by encouraging further meaningful involvement in campus activities. The CCR also provides official documentation to communicate and validate students’ co-curricular involvement to future employers, as well as on graduate school applications, and for applications for grants, scholarships, and bursaries. The CCR is complementary to both an academic transcript and also to a resume.

“We are very pleased to launch the Co-Curricular Record,” said Tom Mauro, Director of Ancillary and Student Services at the University. “This new record provides students with the opportunity to gain credit and formal recognition for the time and effort they put in outside of the classroom. This will help build students resumes as well as their applications to other post-secondary institutions, thereby helping ensure continued student success.”
