ULethbridge receives $1M for liberal arts work-integrated learning

April 18, 2022
The University of Lethbridge has received a $1M gift from Art and Mary Jane Crooks in support of paid work-integrated learning opportunities. The Crooks Work-Integrated Learning Program in Liberal Education will enable students to obtain experience in research, volunteer, or community roles and develop their professional skills before graduation. “We know from years of students participating in co-op work terms or other research or job opportunities, that they’re more professional in their student work and they’ve seen the reason why they’re learning theoretical knowledge,” said ULethbridge School of Liberal Education Dean Shelly Wismath. “They see where it’s used, what it’s good for and how it matters in the community.” ULethbridge (AB)
