Carla has been a remarkable UCC Works ambassador over the years achieving her awards continuously over the past four years in UCC for continuous volunteer work and giving back to the UCC Community. Eoin has worked tremendously hard in various leadership roles over the last few years in Student Life and Volunteering Pathways, and today has achieved the first ever Leadership Award in UCC Works for developing leadership skills and being a true ambassador for our students. Rian has been awarded the first ever UCC Works Global Citizen Award. A global citizen is someone who will take an active role in their community, and work with others to make our planet more equal, fair and sustainable. Well done Rian!

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.
