Get yourself recognized
What is the Co-Curricular Record?
Dalhousie’s Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is an official document from Dalhousie that will recognize your accomplishments and the experiential learning that occurs outside of the classroom, including campus-life and community engagement, volunteer and service leadership, and awards for exemplary contributions.
For more information on what can be recognized on the CCR please refer to the CCR Categories Tab
How can I access it?
Students access the CCR by following these steps:
Click on the Co-Curricular Record Tab (on the left hand side panel)
Click on the Add a Position to My Record button on the top of this page
Search for your positions using the Activity- Quick Look-up Tool or find your position filtering through the various categories.
If you are unable to find your position click on the “Request A Position Be Added” Tab (on the left hand side panel). In this section you will send in a request for the position to be added to the CCR directory (this requires you to include a description and contact information for a supervisor who can vouch that you held that role).
If you are a Dalhousie/King's Staff and Faculty Member please send requests to add new positions to the CCR directory by filling out the online request form (link to this: https://mycareer.dal.ca/ccr/ccrrequest.htm) or contact the CCR team at firstname.lastname@example.org
How will the CCR benefit you?
There are many benefits from having a CCR. It is a great way of tracking your “out-of-class” accomplishments during your time at Dalhousie/King’s University that are not fully reflected on your academic transcript. This can give you an edge over other graduates and helps set you apart from the competition because it provides potential employers and graduate and/or professional schools with a university-recognized document of your involvement outside of the classroom. Some ways that the CCR can be used are for: graduate school applications, job applications, and during job interviews.
The CCR will acknowledge accomplishments that meet the criteria set out in the guidelines above for the 2011–12 academic year onward.
Since each activity or accomplishment requires validation at the time of its completion, it can be difficult to validate activities or accomplishments from previous years. The CCR program strives to be inclusive and fair to all students, therefore it will not be implemented retroactively.
Students can contact staff in the Dalhousie Career & Leadership Development Centre for advice on how to capture activities and accomplishments occurring prior to 2011–12 within a resume, or for applying for jobs and/or post-graduate programs.
