Help spread the word about co-operative education.

The co-op program relies on faculty to help raise student awareness of the program and to promote the value of adding relevant experience to an undergraduate degree. Co-op coordinators are happy to do brief classroom presentations to provide program details to your students.

Getting involved

  • Consult with co-op coordinators for an understanding of the program, from process to opportunities, in order to promote student participation

  • Facilitate class discussions and conversations that allow students to articulate their program knowledge as it would apply in the workplace

  • Discuss with students how a co-op designation, indicating 12 months of work experience, will add value to their degree and help them stand out

  • Become a member of the University of Calgary Co-op/Internship Advisory Board (Contact a co-op coordinator for more details)

  • Suggest industry contacts that the co-op coordinators can follow up for potential co-op opportunities

  • Promote co-op as a means to attract students and enhance the university's profile

The co-op education office is located in the Arts Students' Centre, on the first floor of the Social Sciences building.
