CMU's Gold Program aims to provide students with the opportunity to design their on-campus experience, build important skill sets, and help graduates articulate their out-of-class experiences to future employers. By participating in the program, students are able to showcase their college experience to employers, in a succinct and impactful fashion, increasing their chances of employability upon graduation.

Employers and national research suggest that well-rounded students make better employees. To ensure CMU students have a breadth of experiences, the program assembles co-curricular experiences into five different competency areas, including: 

  • Social Justice & Civic Engagement
  • Career Readiness
  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Leadership Development

Co-curricular experiences are defined as intentionally designed programs, activities, and involvements that are directly tied to CMU's mission, vision, and strategic plan. By choosing meaningful co-curricular experiences through the Gold Program, students have the opportunity to learn more about their values, purpose, and leadership development.
