Fresh Insights on First-Gens

Every year, first-generation students take a leap into the world of higher education, and they represent anywhere from 22 to 77% of a campus population.

Comprehensive Student Records and Co-Curricular Transcripts: Evolution and Current Practices

Student Affairs divisions have long engaged in documenting student participation, involvement, and engagement outside the classroom. Called by various names, Comprehensive Student Records (CSRs) and Co-Curricular Transcripts (CCTs) have often been the purview of student activities offices without much connection to curricular learning and records. Rarely have involvement records been directly useful for students. The range of experiences that are documented, as well as the reflection on learning by students, has resulted in a wide variety of approaches by campuses. Within the past several years, advances in technology support and the hands-on involvement of faculty, students, and registrars have inspired a renewed interest. Join us for a facilitated panel discussion with Western Michigan University, Elon University, and St. Cloud State University to learn more about the history and evolution of CSRs and CCTs. We’ll share campus-specific examples of purpose, design, implementation, administration, and assessment.
