UVic hosts national meetings on work-integrated learning

From November 14 to 16, UVic hosted the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education (CAFCE)’s Annual General Meeting. Representatives from 79 post-secondary institutions passed a vote that expands the association’s mandate to include forms of work-integrated learning beyond co-operative education. As a result, the association has changed its name to Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Canada (CEWIL Canada).

UVic also coordinated a professional development panel discussion on the topic of cultivating stronger support and relationships with Indigenous students and communities. UVic is an active member of CEWIL Canada; its current president is Claudia Sperling, who manages UVic’s Optional and Professional Co-op Programs and Career Services.
