  • There are multiple CAS stages.
  • You will be involved with CAS interviews.
  • You will develop your reflective skills (workshop to follow).

CAS should involve:

  • Real, purposeful activities, which meet one or more of the 7 learning outcomes;
  • Personal challenge (tasks must extend the student and be achievable in scope);
  • Students using the CAS stages (investigation, preparation, action, re flection, and demonstration) to guide CAS experiences and projects;
  • Thoughtful consideration, such as planning, reviewing progress, and reporting (done on ManageBac); and

Why Is CAS necessary?

  • It assists students with being more willing to accept new challenges and new roles.
  • CAS enables the student to be a more reflective thinker.
  • Students become more aware of themselves as members of communities with responsibilities towards each other and the environment.
  • Students become active participants in sustained, collaborative projects.
  • Students are more than just a GPA!
