Satisfy Your Staffing Needs

Lakeland University attracts some of the best and brightest students in the area, and Co-Op allows employers to hire young talent and “test drive” potential long-term hires. At a time when unemployment rates locally are low, Co-Op provides Lakeland's partners with a new source of employees to address staffing needs.

We continue to actively engage with area businesses to develop the model and structure that prepares Lakeland students to enter the workforce. Lakeland is always looking for new opportunities for our campus and students to become involved with local businesses!

Design Your Employees 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.
