Co-Operative Education

Students at their Co-Op

Students and their families, government and business leaders, and the American public are hungry for a new model of higher education that is results-oriented. As an undisputed leader in co-operative education, Drexel is uniquely poised to break away from the pack and create this new model. By aggressively expanding co-operative offerings regionally, nationally, and globally to include mentored research; nonprofit, government, and creative work; and opportunities for field and clinical experiences; and by infusing our academic priorities into the co-op experience, we will enable every Drexel graduate to be optimally prepared for a desirable job or a competitive graduate program that leads to a meaningful career. We will move from the nation's leading co-operative education provider to the world's preeminent co-operative education provider, working with our partners to imagine new, creative, and innovative co-op models to serve our students and society for the next century. In the process, we will become the partner of choice across all sectors as faculty and students help address significant global problems through translational research, technology transfer, and creative work.
