Student Engagement Record

Five students lined up front to back smilingThe University of Louisville recognizes that learning occurs both inside and outside the classroom. Students have the opportunity to record the kinds of engaged activities that take place outside the classroom on a report called Student Engagement Record.

Your academic transcript records your learning inside the classroom and your student engagement record will record the activities that you’ve done outside of the classroom. Highlight your involvement in student organizations, leadership positions held, service both on-campus and in the community as well as your employment information in a way that will show potential employers, graduate programs and others your overall abilities and level of engagement.

The Student Engagement Record provides six categories to record what you are doing outside of class. The categories are:

  • Campus Involvement
  • Community Service
  • Employment
  • Leadership
  • Academic Honors and Student Awards
  • Service Learning
