Position Summary

Student and Community Engagement


As part of Centennial College’s commitment to enhancing the student experience,  the Manager Co-Curricular Student Learning and Development (CCSLD) is responsible for establishing and evaluating an intentional co-curricular learning environment for students.  This is accomplished through operational oversight of programs, activities, and services that facilitate students’ personal, academic, and social development as they transition in, through, and beyond the college.


Peer Programming Peer-led programming provides students with opportunities for involvement and essential skill development; as such, they are created in a curricular fashion to facilitate intentional learning through reflection and experiential learning opportunities.  Further, peer education and mentorship programming complements service model delivery in other areas related to student and student-community development.  Peer education programs include ambassadors, mentors, and service delivery in other units – in addition to liaising Centennial College Students’ Association Incorporated (CCSAI) student groups, International Education, and the Centennial College Residence.


Leadership Activities associated with leadership development (through the new Centennial College Sloan Leadership Academy), volunteerism, and domestic service learning are intentionally designed and assessed to provide students with specialized out-of-class opportunities to develop new essential skills and competencies for career success.
