About Co-Curricular at Northern

What is co-curricular and why do we need to assess it?
Co-curricular activities and experiences are learning opportunities that happen outside of the classroom and contribute to the WHOLE student experience. We assess them to understand how we are fostering the overall transformation of each student.

Co-Curricular Mission

Co-Curricular Committee Members
Co-Curricular Committee Minutes

Student Life and Co-curricular Assessment (CoCu) are coterminous committees that share many of the same members. CoCu assesses all activities outside of the classroom on campus. Student Life organizes, hosts, and/or funds many CoCu events. To be efficient, meetings are combined to create support in areas of overlap in missions, but also to embed a feedback loop where missions differentiate.
