|Co-curricular record application deadline approaching|
|Posted Wednesday, November 9, 2011 10:49 AM|
|The deadline for the University of Manitoba’s new co-curricular record (CCR) has been extended to December 1.|
“To accommodate student groups that had yet to set up for the academic year, we have extended the application deadline,” said Brendan Hughes, director of student life. “Going forward, applications for new programs to be recognized on the CCR will occur annually on the same date.”
The CCR was developed to provide students with an official, validated and authenticated record of their non-academic involvement and achievements as a student at the U of M. The CCR supports the idea of developing well-rounded students and further supports the U of M’s mandate to enhance the student experience.
“Previously, recognition for acceptable committee work was up to the students themselves to identify,” said Hughes. “Under the new CCR system, staff and faculty are encouraged to identify students who sit on committees so as many students as possible can be recognized.”
In the coming months Hughes and the Student Life office will be contacting departments, administrative units and extra-curricular program coordinators that have applied for program inclusion to help guide them with the processes for tracking and validating student involvement.
