Co-Curricular Programming

Co-curricular programming refers to learning experiences that complement what students are learning in the classroom. These programs serve to strengthen a student’s academic experience as well as support a student’s interpersonal development. The HUB Cultural Center supports co-curricular programming by funding Instructionally Related Activities (IRAs) that enhance and deepen academic knowledge. Students will have opportunities to explore their comprehension of classroom material for optimal engagement and investment in their courses. Our co-curricular programming bridges intellectual knowledge and practical experience, which allows students to have an increased opportunity for success, both in the classroom and the community.
