The IDEAS (Involvement, Development & Engagement for Active Students) program strives to provide formal, deliberate and structured leadership opportunities in the areas of individual growth and organizational development. Through this comprehensive program students are encouraged and challenged to extend their learning outside of the classroom in experiential activities that will prepare them for the present and future. IDEAS provides developmental opportunities for students to become informed and effective leaders in the College, fields of study, careers and communities. The IDEAS program challenges students to enrich and deepen their self-knowledge, develop self-confidence and competence, manage their time and energy to live balanced lives, recognize and assume accountability for their actions and decisions, communicate and interact effectively, think creatively and critically, consider multiple perspectives and embrace the responsibilities associated with becoming an ethical, socially responsible leader.
The IDEAS program sponsors conferences, workshops, speakers, and much more!
The Emerging Leaders Series
The Emerging Leaders Series is a six-week long workshop series designed to give first-year and transfer students an opportunity to learn about leadership and meet new friends. The series is perfect for students who are interested in becoming more involved, transitioning in to leadership positions or who simply want to learn more about themselves and others. The Emerging Leaders Series traditionally runs in the spring semester.
The Co-Curricular Transcript is an official record of leadership accomplishments and involvement in student organizations, community service activities and professional/educational development programs. It is designed as a means of recognizing “out of classroom” learning, growth and contributions during a student’s college career. Official copies of the Co-Curricular Transcript can be used to compliment resumes and academic transcripts when applying to graduate/professional schools and for prospective employers.
By creating your own Co-Curricular Transcript, you can match your interests with the appropriate opportunities that will help you obtain a broad and well-balanced range of experiences. This will assist in developing lifelong skills necessary to adapt in an ever-changing world. The Co-Curricular Transcript ties directly with the often quoted insight of Sister Maria Kostka Logue, who said that our students are “here to learn to make a living because [they] must, but [they] are here to learn to live.” The Co-Curricular Transcript will be a permanent record of this learning to live that our students embody.
Entry forms for the Co-Curricular Transcript are available online or in the following offices: Career Development, Residence Life, Student Activities, and the main Student Life Office. A sample of a completed Co-Curricular Transcript is also available as a PDF on this webpage. Completed entry forms should be submitted to Krista Bailey Murphy, Dean of Student Life and she can be reached via e-mail or phone at 215.248.7142 with any questions. Co-Curricular Transcripts can be started and picked up at anytime so start yours today!
