The Co-Curriculum

A Gathered and Growing Community

Andrews University offers a rich learning environment inside and outside the classroom. As part of earning a degree, undergraduate students are expected to engage in out-of-class learning. This complements classroom education and allows students to document valuable experiences that can be shared with graduate schools and prospective employers.

Learning Outcomes. Co-curricular learning targets individual and campus community outcomes in four areas.

  • A Healthy U focuses on physical fitness, sustainable nutrition and personal wellbeing.
  • A Successful U focuses on academic skills, creative capacities and career readiness.
  • A Committed U focuses on faith development, spiritual support and Christian influence.
  • A Better U focuses on cultural competence, service orientation and leadership development.

Together with the academic curriculum, these programs deliver the whole-person education at the heart of Andrews University’s mission.
