In today's workplace, employees need the skill sets necessary for success — not just labor skills, but also the critical thinking skills of abstract reasoning, problem-solving, communication and teamwork.
One form for experiential education at Lakeland is our Cooperative Education program. Offer real-world experience and help students earn a degree through a variety of learning opportunities. Employers that have participated in the program have been pleased with the opportunity to assist in educating the future workforce in the specific needs of their business.
"Employers are always looking for ways to help employees grow into leaders. Lakeland graduates will learn ways to grow and develop skills that are invaluable in today’s fast changing work environment. And, Lakeland’s flexible delivery options make it convenient for busy adults to earn a degree."
What if you could help design a portion of your employee’s degree program based on what you need from them in the workplace? Lakeland's Student-Designed emphasis/concentration and Cooperative Design courses, allow students to earn academic credit toward their degree for existing and future work projects that benefit the student and employer. Employers benefit by tying employee learning directly to what’s happening on the job.
Lakeland University's Develop U offers customized approaches to professional growth. Our workshops and training programs are affordable, engaging and flexible - providing employees with high-quality professional development opportunities.
Your generous support to Lakeland University students and programs can ensure future workforce development and innovation within the higher education system.
