Co-operative education program for faculty and staff
Help students put their learning in motion
As a UVic faculty member, you’ve probably heard about the UVic Co-op Program. But did you know that Co-op is not just for students?
Co-op is a major asset for faculty and staff like you. The program can help you as an employer, as a professor and as a researcher. You can use co-op to enrich your lectures and engage your students, or hire co-op students through the program to help with your research projects.
Hire a co-op student
Co-op students alternate their academic terms with work terms related to their fields of study. If you’re looking for short-term help and want to hire someone who is familiar with your industry, then hiring a co-op student is the right move!
Use co-op in the classroom
One in four UVic students take part in co-op. Why not ask the co-op students in your class to relate their workplace knowledge to your lessons? Find out how you can use co-op to enrich your classes.
