Competency Framework

The University’s competency framework is an in-house, comprehensive learning guide designed to empower and lead you throughout your personal and professional growth journey. Doing so by defining experiences under 5 core competency categories, ensuring that your activity provides you with ample opportinity to develop essential skillsets for success in academia and beyond.

Approved experiences have competencies attached to it by staff and faculty in accordance with how the activity falls into each of the 5 categories. After inclusion, you can choose to self-select the competencies you have developed, as a form of self-reflection and to help you develop a vocabulary to talk about the skills you acquired during the experience.

Note: While the competencies will not appear on your shareable (public) MET, they will still be tied to the experience & accessible on your private transcript for you to view & leverage.
