Global Engaged Tritons CCR Certificate

What is the Globally Engaged Tritons CCR Certificate? 

The Globally Engaged Tritons (GET) CCR Certificate allows UC San Diego students to earn credit on their Co-Curricular Record for being involved in events on campus that promote the global engagement and internationalization of our campus. That could mean any events that allow students to highlight their own culture or learn about other cultures, or allow students to demonstrate or develop their global leadership skills.   

What is my Co-Curricular Record?

The Co-Curricular Record (CCR) highlights student achievements in opportunities beyond the classroom including a brief description and the skills developed on an official record. These are activities officially validated by the University, meaning that your experience in this opportunity will be displayed alongside your academic achievements and have more credibility than un-validated extracurricular activities. 

Through involvement in the Globally Engaged Tritons CCR Certificate program, students will develop these competencies:

  1. Understanding Global Context: Demonstrates an understanding of complex global issues and systems, and how issues and actions have local and global implications for the future. 
  2. Teamwork & Cross-Cultural Collaboration: Works with and seeks involvement from people and entities with diverse experiences towards a common goal, demonstrating strong interpersonal skills, respect, and dignity for others
  3. Self-Reflection: Assesses, articulates and acknowledges personal skills and abilities, and learns from past experiences and feedback to gain new insights and understandings.

How can I earn CCR credit? 

To receive a validation for your participation in the GET CCR opportunity, you must complete 30 hours of approved activities. You may mix and match these opportunities however you choose, as long as you accumulate 30 hours in one academic year. Some of these activities can include:

  • Request funding to run your own event that serves the international students of UC San Diego, or promotes cultural awareness here on campus.
