NEW! LIB 100/201 Events Calendar with On-Campus and Off-Campus Options!

The Co-Curricular program is an integral part of a LIB 100 and LIB 201 class curriculum.  Searching for appropriate events and programs can be an arduous process, we hope to simply the process for faculty and students alike. The following page has been developed to help with the search process, by listing all of the events with the LIB 100/201 designations for the Allendale and Grand Rapids Campuses, as well as Off-Campus options. 

The Co-Curricular program enjoys working with organizations, both on campus and off campus, to provide programs and events with the LIB 100/201 designation to enhance student growth!

Once you complete the training, you will be able to sign up to participate in service learning activities through GVSU's Social Justice Centers (the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Center for Women and Gender Equity, the LGBT Resource Center, the Kaufmann Interfaith Center, and Disability Support Resources)

Co-Curricular one focuses on developing an awareness and knowledge of self and other communities and identities and preparing you for your next  CC requirements. This interactive module will help you reflect upon your own identity and position relative to issues of social justice and engagement.  Once you have completed the training, you can use the BB site to register for service learning opportunities to complete your fourth co-curricular requirement by participating in one of GVSU’s Social Justice Center service-learning opportunities.
