Brock’s Co-op Programs Office has big plans, prizes for #coopweek

Published on March 17 2014

Fourteen thousand #Brockcoop mentions in five days.

That’s how many social media hits there would be if each of Brock’s 2,800 Co-op students hashtagged #Brockcoop once a day.

Will that be enough tweets to break Twitter? Probably not, but it would certainly be enough to raise national awareness about Brock’s successful co-op program.

That’s the goal of Brock’s Co-op Programs Office.

It is spearheading Brock’s social media participation in National Co-op Week, which is organized by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE), which runs from March 17-21.

Cindy Dunne, director of Co-op Programs, wants Brock co-op students, staff, faculty and employers to share their photos, thoughts and tips about the co-op experience on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. Posts should be tagged with #Brockcoop and #coopweek. She hopes to have the highest number of social media mentions on Friday, March 21 during the “Social Media, Surgite!” day.
