Benefits of CWE for the College
Cooperative Work Experience strengthens the relationship between the college and the business community. The interaction of student-instructor-employer provides valuable, current input concerning labor market conditions and the implications for curriculum. Student success and a skilled work force benefit the college and the community at large.
Responsibilities of the College:
The college provides organization, coordination, program supervision and maintenance of student records. A college instructor will visit and counsel with the student and employer during the semester and, together with the supervisor, determine the student's grade.
Responsibilities of Supervising Faculty:
- Assist the student in writing three clearly defined learning objectives and complete related paperwork during the first class session.
- Visit each student's job-site twice during the semester (the first visit may be a phone call) to discuss and finalize the learning objectives with the employer and to evaluate the performance and objectives at the semester's end.
- Meet with the student near the end of the semester to evaluate his/her objectives.
- Notify employers if a CWE student drops the class at any time during the semester.
