Co-Curricular Paths: From Concept to Execution

Students have more options than ever when it comes to customizing their on-campus experience. More and more campuses are creating co-curricular paths to encourage students’ involvement in experiences outside of the classroom. These programs not only showcase the variety and depth of opportunities, but also help students become more connected to campus. Campus Labs staff will demonstrate how the co-curricular tool allows campuses to measure and document the co-curricular experiences that extend beyond classroom learning.

Curriculums are not just about credits and courses. While Academic and Student Affairs can have different missions common ground is found in engaging students.

Promoting CORQ as your primary events calendar

SUNY Oneonta went from zero users in March 2016 to 1,864 by February 2017.

Learn about the benefits and challenges of pursuing a single comprehensive campus calendar.
