What is a CCR?

Laurier’s Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is as an institutionally recognized chronicle of student engagement and student leadership involvement.

 

What is the purpose of the CCR?

·To encourage and recognize meaningful student involvement

·To maximize and support intentional learning that occurs as a result of student involvement

·To complement the academic experience by encouraging further involvement and purposeful reflection

·To serve as a search tool for students wishing to connect with a multitude of involvement opportunities at Laurier

 

What are the benefits of the CCR?

·Provides students with a validated and authenticated record of their involvement while at Wilfrid Laurier University

·Provides students with a tool to share and communicate their co-curricular involvement to potential employers, on Graduate school applications and for grants and bursaries

·Complements the Academic Transcript by providing students with a tool to help them identify, evaluate and reflect on the learning that occurred as a result of engagement in co-curricular activities

·Contributes to an enhanced  culture of student involvement at Wilfrid Laurier University

What qualifies for CCR recognition?

*Activities must meet all four criteria to be eligible for CCR recognition

1. Activity provides students with meaningful learning opportunities

2. Activity is co-curricular in nature and is not required for academic credit

3. Activity meets validation process requirements

4. Activity supports and fosters transformational experiences as opposed to transactional services

 

To see detailed explanations of these four criteria, please see the CCR Inclusion Guide at waterloo.mylaurier.ca/leadership/download

 

How does an activity get included in the CCR database?

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

1. Visit the SLC to complete an “application for recognition” form

2. Application is then reviewed by the Student Leadership Centre to ensure meaningful and purposeful programming

3. Activity is added to database and remains online provided that all validation timelines are met and Learning Outcomes are achieved.

How do I access my CCR?

Log on to waterlooccr.mylaurier.ca and use your LORIS login account info.

If your login and password do not work, please contact ccr@wlu.ca

 

How do I add an activity that I participated in to my CCR?

Log into your CCR account and from the Dashboard, select My Record and “add an activity to your record”.  You will be prompted to reflect on your involvement  by identifying Levels of Achievement which will be generated as Learning Outcomes on your individual Co-Curricular Record.

 

Your request for CCR recognition is forwarded to your **Validator  for approval.  The CCR is not retroactive so students must add activities during the same academic year in which they were involved. This encourages you to think critically and reflect on your involvement each year and ensures a timely and accurate validation process. 


 

For step-by-step instructions on how to add an activity to your CCR, click here and download the CCR Information for Students and Validators document.

**Validator – the individual responsible for approving or declining students’ requests for an activity to be added to their CCR.  This individual is usually the staff, student or faculty who oversees, coordinates or facilitates a particular activity (group, club, event, workshop etc.) and can verify the authenticity of a student request.

 

What do I do if I can’t find the activity that I participated in?

Activities do not appear on the CCR for several reasons:

1. The activity did not meet Inclusion Guidelines

2. The activity has not been submitted to the Database by the Validator

3. The Validator failed to validate activities from previous years

 

Please contact ccr@wlu.ca for more information.

 

What important dates should I be aware of?

You should add the activities you participated in by March 31, 2014.  Validators are responsible for approving or declining all pending requests by April 30, 2014. 

 

If I have a CCR created prior to January 2010, do I need to create a new one?

No.  All old accounts have been transferred into the new CCR database.

 

What are Learning Outcomes?

Learning Outcomes will appear on the printed version of your individual Co-Curricular Record, and are identified by you to reflect your individual learning resulting from your involvement experiences. Learning Outcomes can be likened to transferable skills and encourage meaningful learning as a result of student involvement.

 

Who can I contact with questions?

Contact the CCR Ambassadors at ccr@wlu.ca for more information or drop by the Student Leadership Centre on the 2nd Floor of the Fred Nichols Campus Centre.
