As key stakeholders in higher education debate ways to reduce cost while improving student learning, the contribution and value added by cocurricular education is often overlooked. This session will discuss how to create and measure the connection between participation in cocurricular experiences and the development of skills that employers value most. Using data generated by a national benchmarking study led by the presenter, and drawing upon examples from a recently published joint report by the National Association for Campus Activities and National Intramural and Recreational Sports Association (Leaders in Collegiate Recreation) which was edited by the presenter, participants will learn how to generate and package data so key stakeholders can see the value of experiences outside of the classroom.

  • Articulate ten skills desired by employers as determined by the survey by the National Associate of Colleges and Employers.
  • Design an effective assessment of employment skills.
  • Understand how to package student learning data to demonstrate the impact of cocurricular involvement on their campuses.
  • Student Activities Professionals
  • Student Organization Advisors
  • Chief Student Affairs Officers
  • Career Services Professionals
  • Recreation Professionals
