CUBS Leaders of Tomorrow is an initiative that formally recognises the impact of students beyond academic grades. It allows students to showcase their many talents, capabilities, and resulting impacts across several categories. Open to all undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes, Leaders of Tomorrow enables students to articulate a complete picture of their impact during their time in CUBS. Some examples of the activities that got recognised include: charity work (Global citizen), coaching and mentoring (Learning Transformation), improvements made in the workplace (Innovation and Entrepreneurship), supporting fellow students (Student’s choice), overcoming personal challenges or life-changing situations like a bereavement (Exceptional Journey). There are three levels of recognition, all of which give students an individual differentiating factor that can be used as part of many future career activities. See below for the category winners (Outstanding Achievement Award).
Across the categories, there are three awards (i) Recognition Certificate, which is given for the demonstration of a clear positive impact, (ii) Outstanding Achievement, which is given for the demonstration of an exceptional impact, and (ii) Sustained Impact, which is given for the accumulation of three or more awards throughout a student’s time in CUBS.
Open to all undergraduate and postgraduate taught students. Only one (self-nominated) submission is allowed per year.
Take your first step in becoming a Leader of Tomorrow and discuss your activities and impacts with a member of CUBS staff. To get your leadership qualities recognised go to http://ucc.ie/cubsleaders for more details and the submission forms.
