CU engineering students who enhance their education through a range of active learning experiences are eligible to earn an award for it at graduation. The Active Learning Award recognizes participation in three different kinds of hands-on learning experiences: discovery, service, and professional learning. Undergraduate students who participate in all three areas will receive an active learning medal at graduation.
The award was created in 2004 to support the college’s strong belief that active learning enriches a student’s education and better prepares them to excel in the world through leadership and service.
To earn an Active Learning Award, you must have participated in each of the three types of active learning (discovery, service, and professional) and you must submit an application by the posted deadline (see the dark gray box on the right of this page.) An individualized email including the application will be sent to all students the semester of the term in which they have applied for graduation (how to apply for graduation can be found here.) Applications will generally be emailed one month prior to the application due date; therefore, if you apply for graduation after that date, you will need to contact Dan Watson directly to receive an application.
*Note: Summer graduates are given the opportunity to submit an application so that they are able to wear the medal at spring graduation ceremonies. Just be sure to have applied for graduation by the same deadlines as spring graduates and an application will be emailed to you.
It is recommended that you print out or save a copy for your records. You will be provided this option after you complete the online application.
Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page before contacting us if you have any questions.
We look forward to reviewing your application!
