Developing engaged, career-ready graduates
From the time you became a CMU student, you have been encouraged to get involved. You know it is a great way to meet new people with similar interests and to have something to put on your resume. But did you know that being involved helps develop important employability skills such as communication, leadership, team work and work ethic?
CMU Gold Path guides students to design their on-campus involvement and cocurricular experiences into skills and knowledge valuable to employers and grad schools. Cocurricular experiences are where learning happens outside the classroom, often leading to developing skills such as leadership and teamwork.
CMU Gold Path lays a path for any CMU student – freshman through senior – to discover how doing what you love provides the learning opportunities that will help you develop skills employers desire in a college graduate!
CMU Gold Path is a feature in Engage Central for all student engagement opportunities at Central Michigan University. You will use this to find approved events, submit reflections and track progress for CMU Gold Path. All CMU students, faculty and staff have access with their CMU global ID and password.
Through three phases of CMU Gold Path, you will design your well-rounded college experience while taking part in out-of-class opportunities that build important skill sets.
