What is the CCT?
The Co-Curricular Transcript is a student self-reported document listing various kinds of developmental activities outside the traditional classroom.
The Co-Curricular Transcript is intended to provide each student with an official record of:
- Honors, awards, and recognitions
- Leadership activities and organizational experiences
- Professional development and educational training
- Community Service and Engagement
What can a student use the CCT for?
This document will provide information on a student's participation and level of involvement in co-curricular activities that can be used:
- As a supplement to a student’s resume
- As a record of college activities
- In applications for awards
- In applications for scholarships and post-undergraduate programs
Activities that should be included on the CCT:
- Leadership Development – organization, activity, conference or program
- Educational and Skill Development – participation in any co-curricular learning experiences - i.e. workshops, training programs, or volunteer experiences - related to personal or professional development
- Awards and Honors – any type of formal recognition bestowed upon an individual or as a part of a group
- Student Organizations and Activities Participation – membership in any organization, club, activity, or program that requires sustained participation
- Community Service – must take place during enrollment as a student at University of Dayton
- Athletics – membership in any intercollegiate competitive sport or intramural team during enrollment at University of Dayton
Should my employment experience be included?
Employment experience is generally listed on a resume rather than a CCT, but each experience is different and if the position is connected to your educational experience but not part of an academic program (workstudy positions, internships for non-credit, etc.) this may be something that you want included.
Examples of activities that qualify for the CCT:
- Governance Groups
- Academic/Professional Organizations
- Athletic/Recreation Groups
- Special Interest Groups
- Social/Service Organizations
- Committee Membership
- Elected Offices
Why should I be interested in maintaining my CCT?
Participating in the program is extremely rewarding and it will help you:
- Plan your personal goals
- Consider your vocation
- Manage your time
- Develop leadership skills
- Increase cultural awareness
- Supplement your scholarship process
These experiences assist you in gaining career-related experience, making a difference in campus and community, gaining new and valuable relationships, and developing leadership and communication skills.
Activities will also be acknowledged as the relate to the Seven Student Learning Outcomes:
1. Scholarship: All undergraduates will develop and demonstrate advanced habits of academic inquiry and creativity through the production of a body of artistic, scholarly or community-based work intended for public presentation and defense.
2. Faith traditions: All undergraduates will develop and demonstrate ability to engage in intellectually informed, appreciative, and critical inquiry regarding major faith traditions. Students will be familiar with the basic theological understandings and central texts that shape Catholic beliefs and teachings, practices, and spiritualities. Students’ abilities should be developed sufficiently to allow them to examine deeply their own faith commitments and also to participate intelligently and respectfully in dialogue with other traditions.
3. Diversity: All undergraduates will develop and demonstrate intellectually informed, appreciative, and critical understanding of the cultures, histories, times, and places of multiple others, as marked by class, race, gender, ethnicity, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, and other manifestations of difference. Students’ understanding will reflect scholarly inquiry, experiential immersion, and disciplined reflection.
4. Community: All undergraduates will develop and demonstrate understanding of and practice in the values and skills necessary for learning, living, and working in communities of support and challenge. These values and skills include accepting difference, resolving conflicts peacefully, and promoting reconciliation; they encompass productive, discerning, creative, and respectful collaboration with persons from diverse backgrounds and perspectives for the common purpose of learning, service, and leadership that aim at just social transformation. Students will demonstrate these values and skills on campus and in the Dayton region as part of their preparation for global citizenship.
5. Practical wisdom: All undergraduates will develop and demonstrate practical wisdom in addressing real human problems and deep human needs, drawing upon advanced knowledge, values, and skills in their chosen profession or major course of study. Starting with a conception of human flourishing, students will be able to define and diagnose symptoms, relationships, and problems clearly and intelligently, construct and evaluate possible solutions, thoughtfully select and implement solutions, and critically reflect on the process in light of actual consequences.
6. Critical evaluation of our times: Through multidisciplinary study, all undergraduates will develop and demonstrate habits of inquiry and reflection, informed by familiarity with Catholic Social Teaching, that equip them to evaluate critically and imaginatively the ethical, historical, social, political, technological, economic, and ecological challenges of their times in light of the past.
7. Vocation: Using appropriate scholarly and communal resources, all undergraduates will develop and demonstrate ability to articulate reflectively the purposes of their life and proposed work through the language of vocation. In collaboration with the university community, students’ developing vocational plans will exhibit appreciation of the fullness of human life, including its intellectual, ethical, spiritual, aesthetic, social, emotional, and bodily dimensions, and will examine both the interdependence of self and community and the responsibility to live in service of others.
