Cooperative education is an exciting new way to earn a Lakeland degree, earn valuable professional experience and control the cost of college. Lakeland is the only school in the Midwest offering cooperative education.

Consider the benefits of being a Lakeland co-op student:

By incorporating work experiences into an academic experience, you’ll see the link between what you learn in the classroom and the job you’re performing in the workplace. We’ll also teach you the skills employees seek that will help you develop as a professional.

Employer partners from a wide variety of professional work environments and industries are eagerly collaborating with Lakeland to hire well-prepared, highly motivated students.

By participating in co-op, employers are actively developing their future pipeline of talent and directly influencing the education of students entering their professions.

Co-op is administered by LU’s Career Readiness & Cooperative Education staff, and supervised by a faculty member.
