I participate in the Co-Op program because: I appreciate being able to earn credits while building a career for myself and learning workplace skills.

Lakeland is good fit for me because: Lakeland values culture and diversity and does what they can to promote student success.
Lakeland University is the only Midwestern school that offers Cooperative Education across all majors by allowing participating students to gain on-the-job knowledge and academic credit for their work. LU students can earn up to 25% of the degree through work and post-work reflection.
Each year, we welcome more students who are interested in the benefits of Co-Op and the ability to connect with a lengthy list of corporate and organizational partners who support the program and our student’s learning.
