Get Involved This Week: July 13-17

Important Note: Changes are coming for the Get Involved/Co-Curricular Record portal

The Get Involved/Co-Curricular Record portal will get a new look starting July 20. While the information, functionality and current data will remain, the new Campus Labs site provides a more modern design, and is more mobile friendly, accessible and easy to navigate.

Get Involved This Week

The Get Involved Co-Curricular Record Portal showcases the many opportunities for students to get involved in while at Niagara College. Any NC area can post student activities or opportunities through the portal. When logged in to getinvolved.NiagaraCollege.ca, students see a virtual flyer board featuring posters of the on and off campus CCR opportunities and activities.

Through the Get Involved Co-Curricular Record portal, students are able to access and populate their Co-Curricular Record (CCR) which is an official Niagara College document.

Every Monday, the Get Involved NC newsletter is sent out to everyone registered on the portal through the internal messaging feature. This message can be sent through to their preferred email address if students opt in to receive portal messaging this way. The Get Involved NC newsletter goes out at the beginning of each week in order to highlight the opportunities and events occurring that week, in addition to the volunteer opportunities that are currently open for students to sign up.

If you have opportunities that you would like to be featured on the flyer board and are unsure of how to proceed, please contact the Get Involved – CCR Coordinator, Rox Chwaluk at [email protected]
