Cooperative Education: Institutional Profiles of Integrated Learning. NCCE Executive Summary Series, No. 2.
Hutcheson, Polly, Ed.
This report highlights the various strategies used to relate cooperative education (CE) work experience to students' academic programs by profiling 17 colleges and universities that are members of the National Commission for Cooperative Education's College Partner Program. Each profile includes a brief statement from the institution's president; describes the orientation procedures for students entering the CE program; notes how the institution recognizes participation in the CE program; describes integrated learning mechanisms used; and explains new or special procedures related to the operation of the CE program. Each profile also includes basic data on the program, such as contact information, total institutional enrollment, length of term for the CE experience, year CE program was established, description of program structure, CE enrollment, program fees, minimum and maximum number of CE terms possible, student selection criteria, number of CE employers, and earliest term students may participate in the program. A glossary of program characteristics is included. Additional information is provided on an accompanying computer diskette. (MDM)
