-Provide students supervised work experience in a curriculum-related field with area businesses, industries, and public agencies.
-Support career development for students.Coordinate network with employers and prospective employers about the Co-op program and support economic workforce development.
-Create and maintain accurate, detailed Co-op records in adherence to the North Carolina Community College System Policies and Procedures.
Through Co-op, students:
