UNB recommended to expand co-op opportunities

June 22, 2010

In its submission to the University of New Brunswick's strategic planning committee, the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce makes several recommendations on strategic directions for the university, one of which proposes that the university expand co-op opportunities to all faculties. The Chamber of Commerce suggests the co-op program be managed through one central office to make it easier for employers and students to ask about or suggest placements. Other recommendations include creating a business office, recognizing volunteer work with credit, offering increased flexibility and graduated programming, building partnerships with provincial universities, working with the province on credential recognition, and consulting with industry.
