National Co-op & Work Integrated Learning Month

Hey Badgers! 
Have you heard of National Co-op & Work Integrated Learning Month? Each year, CEWIL Canada (Co-operative Education and Work Integrated Learning) celebrates the successes and promotes awareness of co-op and work-integrated learning programs across Canada. Brock University’s Co-op, Career and Experiential Education (CCEE) unit participates in this annual event to help promote the successes of our students, partnerships and programs. To participate in any of our social media contests tag us and use the following hashtags! #WILPower #ExperienceMore

What is #ExperienceMore?

Throughout the month of March, we invite students, faculty, employers and community partners to learn about, reflect on and engage in activities that go beyond the classroom, that encourage students to explore new possibilities as they prepare for their life beyond university.  As our school motto says – Surgite!  Push on, try new things and say yes to new opportunities. 
What’s Happening in March?
