Co-curricular activities provided to students are vital to education in lifelong learning and compliment our students’ formal curriculum. Co-curricular student learning outcomes guide activities to provide opportunities to enhance student knowledge in a meaningful way.
Internship/Capstone Projects as Co-curricular Events
Internships and Capstone projects are considered co-curricular based on the experiential role they play in the students’ education. They may take place for a grade, as part of a required or culminating experience or they may be summer employment that a student discusses with an advisor, that is not a graded part of the required curriculum.

Instructions for Leaders of Co-curricular Activities
Co-Curricular activities provide a quick report and submit flyers to record the outcomes the activity was planned for. Additionally, a participant survey after the activity records the success of the activity and effectiveness of meeting the outcomes. All shared information about a co-curricular activity needs to include:
- A statement of the purpose of the activity on all activity announcements or flyers (What do you expect participants will learn?).
- And then, please, send a copy of your activity poster/invitation/announcement, for the record, to email@example.com.
