The Ingenuity in Action program at Cornell College provides guided opportunities to students to document and reflect on their educational experiences.

What should advisors know?

Cornell College will adopt new requirements for all students entering the college in Fall 2020 as first year students. As part of those requirements, students need to complete two experiences among six experiential learning categories; Civic Engagement, Creative Expression, Global Connections, Leadership, Professional Exploration, and Research.

The College is currently developing checklists for Academic Advisors to use in helping students meet this graduation requirement.

When a student completes an experience and submits the final reflection, the Academic Advisor listed on their application will be notified. The email notification is sent through Presence and will include a PDF of the student’s final reflection. No action is required for advisors.

More information will be added to help academic advisors understand the new requirements and ensure their students meet those requirements for graduation. Check back soon, or you can contact the Berry Career Institute for more information on Ingenuity in Action.
