UNW is starting a co-op program!

In the summer of 2014, UNW will begin building a co-op program. Co-ops are similar to internships, but usually last for more than one semester, are paid experiences, and typically have more intentional relationships with employers. Initially, the co-op program will focus on engineering, biology and mathematics.
