Co-Curricular Record

Cape Breton University’s Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is an official University document that recognizes student achievements and involvement in activities and events outside of the classroom. It’s another way to get credit for activities that are not a credited part of a program or coursework, such as volunteer work.

The Co-Curricular Record has been designed to complement your resume, not replace it. When applying to graduate or professional schools or competing for employment opportunities, your CCR is a tool that will allow you to showcase documented experiences that have made an impact on your life or the lives of others. A robust CCR will allow you to develop skills in a variety of meaningful categories.

Students can gain acknowledgement and recognition for their role in activities that demonstrate the following, and contribute to the betterment of the whole university student experience:

  1. Student Leadership (ex. Students’ Representative Council Chairperson, Peer Success Coach, etc.)
  2. Campus Engagement (ex. Let’s Talk Science Outreach Volunteer, Women’s Centre Coordinator, etc.)
  3. Governance ( ex. Ex-Officio Member of Senate,  SU VP Promotions, etc.)
  4. Honours, Awards, Recognition ( ex. Tapiwa Gat Memorial Award, Patrick Johnson Aboriginal Student Leadership Award, etc.)
  5. Societies (Business Society Treasurer, Christian Society President, Parks Canada Society President)
