Co-Curricular Experiences Database

Are you running an activity (event, club, group, workshop, volunteer opportunity, etc.) and want to get it included in the Co-Curricular Experiences database so students can get recognition for participating? Here’s how you can determine if your activity is eligible and if so, how to get it in the database.

Why Should Your Group Seek Inclusion in the Co-Curricular Experiences Database?

  • It gives the members an official means of being recognized for their leadership contributions at Laurier.
  • It increases each member’s dedication to the group as they will want the best learning experience possible.
  • It supports the learning that each member does as part of their participation.
  • It contributes to an enhanced culture of student involvement.

Criteria for Recognition on the Laurier Experience Record

Activities must meet all three of the criteria below to be eligible for Experience Record recognition.

How to Get an Activity Included in the Co-Curricular Experiences Database

Assuming your activity meets the criteria for inclusion, there are three simple steps to getting it added to the database.

  1. Email the Experience Record Coordinator who will send you the appropriate form to complete.
  2. The Experience Record Coordinator reviews application to ensure meaningful and purposeful programming as well as minimum time commitments.
  3. Activity is added to database and remains online provided that all validation timelines are met and achieved.

Timeline

August to November

  • Experience Record Coordinator connects with faculty or staff member who validates each activity listed in the database to ensure yearly accuracy.
  • Using the application for recognition, validators identify the anticipated competencies for their programming. This is completed for each position independently.

December to March

  • Students must log in and add positions through the Co-Curricular Experiences module by the March deadline. 

April

  • Validation Period. Validators either submit a list of participants to be approved or they log into Navigator to validate the pending requests. 

May to August

  • Staff and students will review the information collected regarding both the anticipated and actual competencies. 
  • The information collected will be used for the upcoming academic year to support validators in developing programming and training to maximize learning for all involved students.
