Cooperative Education Annual Report


University of Wisconsin-Stout’s Cooperative Education and Internship Program (CEIP) is celebrating 40 years of success. We are proud to have supported 26,467 student enrollments at thousands of worksites across the world. These experiences allow students to balance classroom theory with practical work experience prior to graduation. Our program supports UW-Stout’s polytechnic designation by providing students the opportunity to experience an active and applied focus on learning in their professional field. Our program is based on a framework of collaborative partnerships among employers, students, and the university. Participating in a co-op or internship is a programmatic approach to aid in intellectual and professional growth and career success that demands continual learning and integration. CEIP is centrally coordinated through the Career Services office in collaboration with the academic departments. Faculty provide support and mentorship to the 1073 students participating in 1130 CEIP enrollments. Employers have shown steady support for the program with 705 employers hosting job sites.
