CO-CURRICULAR LEARNING EXPERIENCES

Co-curricular learning experiences p resent students opportunities that contribute to acquiring core competencies including adaptability, decision making, problem solving, teamwork, leadership, civic virtue, critical thinking, interpersonal skills and practical competence. The co-curriculum provides a way in which college students begin to express their own goals, values and interests, and prepared for success in their lives after college. Over time, these opportunities expanded t o include a wider variety of programs designed t o impact student success in terms of retention, graduation and learning positively. Co-curricular learning experiences are widely recognized as purposeful engagement of students in the process of acquiring competencies through s pecific and deliberate behaviors that are transformative in nature and place the student’s reflective process at the center of the learning experience (See Dean 2015, Kuh 2001, Meents-DeCaigny and Sanders 2015, Sterling and Kerr 2015).
