The My Spartan Story Team looks forward to working with you to support continued growth of My Spartan Story, MSU’s co-curricular record. Below, you will find helpful information and links to register for our Spring 2022 workshops.
What qualifies as an out-of-classroom or co-curricular learning experience for My Spartan Story?
My Spartan Story defines co-curricular as “an intentional learning activity not bearing academic credit, where the experience has learning goals measured by an assessment strategy.”
Experiences can include but are not limited to:
- Community engagement
- Committee service
- Leadership roles
- On-campus jobs
- Student organizations
- Undergraduate research
I advise and/or supervise a co-curricular experience listed above. How can it be added to the co-curricular record?
Experiences are submitted for inclusion in the record by MSU faculty and staff (we do welcome and encourage students to be a part of the process with you).
When should experiences be submitted by for the Spring 2022 term?
The preferred deadline is April 1, 2022. (This allows the Advisory Committee time to review and to ensure experiences will display on a student’s Spartan Experience Record by commencement).
I would like to learn more about My Spartan Story. What are ways I can do so?
