Discussions not over on co-curricular project

Letter to the Editors

Re: “Admin won’t add extracurriculars to student transcripts” (Mar. 8, 2012)

Dear Editors,

I’d like to clarify the University’s position on the co-curricular record project. The University supports student engagement in co-curricular activities on and off campus. We have received some mixed feedback from students about the possibility of introducing a co-curricular record. Further to our discussions with students we are exploring additional options and ways to support student involvement outside of the classroom, including a searchable database of co-curricular opportunities. We will continue to consider all of these options.

Arig Girgrah,
Assistant Dean of Student Affairs
