Professional and Career Development Record

The Professional and Career Development Record (PCDR) is a tool built into Experience Guelph soft launching in Summer 2021. The PCDR formally recognizes a student’s involvement in on- and off- campus professional and career development activities, most notably experiential learning.

Aspects of University of Guelph Professional and Career Development

The University of Guelph recognizes professional and career development as the unique and sometimes overlapping aspects of:

  • Academic Programme Learning and Curricular Experiential Learning, established by faculty and academic curriculum committees, and supported through the institutional quality assurance process.
  • Co-curricular Experiential Learning, offered by departments across all divisions of the U of G, and supported through the Co-curricular Experiential Learning Integrity Committee
  • Career Services, offered through the Experiential Learning Hub and academic departments.

PCDR Information and Updates

Information and updates will be released here throughout Summer 2021.
