Abstract

The paper mainly attempts to examine whether co-curricular activities and extra-curricular activities could contribute to the all-round development of the undergraduate students and how these activities may be developed to ensure quality education in a public university in Bangladesh. The study was a qualitative study in which multiple case study and document analysis methods were employed. The study found that the undergraduate students have developed a wide range of personal and social skills including communication skill, organizing skill, presentation skill, public speaking skill and analytical skill by taking part in such activities. The CCAs and ECAs have also facilitated brain development, knowledge acquisition, personality development, and civic development of the students. Hence, the study argued that the CCAs and ECAs have diverse effects to promote allround development of the students. In order to explain how these activities could be developed in a public university, the paper identified several clubs and associations and their key functions. Finally, the paper suggested that the Government and the authority concerned should undertake proper measures for organizing diverse CCAs and ECAs properly and thereby ensure quality education and attain SDGs.
