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!

Activate: Activate is an interactive online orientation module developed and run by GVSU's Social Justice Centers. It is designed to prepare GV students for co-curricular and engagement opportunities on and off campus. It can be completed at your own pace and from your computer, taking anywhere from 45-75 minutes to complete. 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)

Ask your LIB 100 or 201 instructor about completing Activate for co-curricular credit.
