In 2018, as we prepared for our upcoming accreditation review with the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) there was a new focus from the Council on Co-curricular Programming. A curriculum map gap analysis was compiled by our assessment and curriculum committees. The gap analysis identified a deficiency of learning opportunities for students in five Center for the Advancement of Pharmacy Education (CAPE) learning outcomes. In response, a co-curricular committee was developed, which was charged with mapping events and co-curricular offerings to the outcomes.
Following the compilation of the list of opportunities, the curriculum committee approved the list offerings as sufficient to fill the gaps; however, there was no method for assessing co-curricular involvement. To find a single platform to meet all these needs, we introduced the Campus Labs Engage platform to the pharmacy program. The draw for Engage was the pathways portion for our co-curricular tracking and assessment, the ability to manage involvement records and advertise career opportunities solidified the decision to move forward with the software.
