COMING SOON – FALL 2023 EVENTS
Co-op Education hosts several Year 1 Co-op Programming events that will allow you to explore and understand your skills and interests, as well as develop an understanding and awareness of the different skill development and job opportunities you can gain. These events will also build awareness and knowledge of how the Co-op Education Program and other internal partners can further support and enhance your continued success in your co-op journey during your first year and onward.
