UCC Works Award
Congratulations to everyone - over 300 awards were given at a fantastic ceremony on Wednesday 21st March in Devere Hall.
A huge congratulations today to everyone who has achieved their UCC Works Awards, and for the first time, a UCC Digital Badge in Devere Hall.
What an outstanding accomplishment for over 300 students! UCC is proud of your participation, your contribution to… AND successes in, extracurricular activities, so much so that the University wants to give you formal recognition for this contribution in the form of a UCC Works Award and UCC Digital Badge.
Well done everyone, we are so proud of you all. Super congratulations to Erin Hyslop, Brigita Gallagher and Udaya Khandavilli in your award of Highly Commended for outstanding talent, and to Susan Butler for achievement of your Star Award.
We will be launching the 2018-2019 UCC Works Awards on Monday 10th September 2018 on www.studentvolunteer.ie/ucc
UCC welcomes and applauds your involvement in, and contribution to, volunteering and civic and community engagement, extracurricular activities like clubs and societies, students’ union, class reps and uLink Peer Support, the Homework Club and the Chaplaincy.
This year we have expanded the Volunteering Pathway to 'Volunteering and Community Engagement' – this will expand the range of activities that students can be awarded for going forward in years to come.
Participation in these activities has the dual effect of developing your own transferable skills for the world of work but also enhances the student experience for everyone on campus.
The delivery of digital badges directly addresses the university’s strategic goal of ‘Delivering research inspired teaching and learning with a world class student experience’. Micro-credentials, or digital badges, are being offered in most of the world’s top ranked universities.. as students increasingly seek recognition for extra-curricular contributions made during their studies.
The badge refers directly to UCC’s seven essential values of Creativity, Responsiveness, Transparency, Scholarship, Freedom of Expression, Integrity, Equality, Diversity and Respect.
Each of the students here today being awarded the UCC Works Award, will now also be awarded the UCC Digital Badge which you can showcase online on your Linkedin Profiles, your E-Portfolios etc.
Well done all.
