With 'Investing in Talent. The Contribution
of University Colleges - Fourth Report of the Conference of University Colleges
of Merit ', CCUM aims to showcase the educational programs carried out every
day in the University Colleges for resident and not resident students.
The report provides data on more than 4,000
students who live in the 55 Colleges of CCUM and the implemented activities:
- students from different study fields and
their academic achievements,
- courses accredited by Universities,
- soft skills courses,
- international partnerships,
- joint initiatives with the business
community and local institutions,
- cultural activities, guidance and mentoring.
The data underlines that the training
project of the University Colleges has an impact on the employability of students:
the ‘alumni’ results far exceed the Italian average employment status, compared
with ISTAT and Alma Laurea surveys. Another distinctive feature is the number
of international students inside the university colleges: 12% of the residents,
three times higher than the national average.
