Bridging academic and employability skills to educate the next generation of citizen scholars

Benefits of participation

Students that participate in the FUSION curriculum will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive up to 10-hours of CCR credit to enhance your resume and career portfolio,
  • Articulate skills in ways that demonstrate how you can contribute to a positive academic and workplace culture
  • Develop and incorporate communication, problem-solving and metacognition as highlighted skills on your resume and career portfolio
  • Maximize skill set by taking risks, getting feedback and continuing to improve your skills
  • Engage in potential cross-collaborative network work-integrated-learning initiatives

For the fall term, students from the Internship-Carleton University Research Experience for Undergraduate Students (I-CUREUS), Students as Partners Program (SaPP), the Co-op program, ACT to Employ, the Enriched Support Program/ Indigenous Enriched Support Program (ESP/IESP), the Afro-Caribbean Mentorship Program (ACMP), the Mentorship Network, Center for Student Academic Support (CSAS) and the Science Student Success Centre (SSSC) who successfully complete all six modules will receive a $150 honorarium and CCR credits. Students who complete the six modules as part of a credited course are eligible to receive CCR credits.

Although designed as a self-learning online resource, FUSION students can participate in additional programming. In collaboration with Career Services, TLS, SEO and other units on campus, Carleton offers additional workshops, drop-in sessions and career portfolio support to enhance student recognition and articulation of your skills.

“Overall, I highly recommend participating in this program to help build your career portfolio for future employment and further develop your transferrable skills. I personally enjoyed the workbook prompts because it encouraged me to self-reflect on my skills while thinking of manageable steps to further improve them as well. Thank you again for building this informative and valuable course for us!” -Kristal Mae P.
