For some time now, we’ve heard from students that our co-op website needed a face-lift. And we couldn’t agree more!
Over the past few months, we’ve consulted with students and staff across campus to gather feedback on our website and brainstorm how to make it a more useful resource for current co-op students. Our own co-op students played a significant role in this project by helping us inform and implement changes to the structure and design of the site.
Now, our new site is set up to help current co-op students navigate the co-op process by laying out information in a more user-friendly way and focusing on the many supports and resources available across campus.
Third-year Architecture student Simone Delaney pursued an international co-op work term to gain new perspectives on the world. While working in Jakarta, Indonesia, she also gained life-changing experiences through the impactful work she did for Yayasan Peta Bencana, an organization that offers open-source mapping visualization software to help manage climate disasters. While on her work term, Yayasan Peta Bencana received the United Nations Public Service Award for ensuring integrated approaches in public sector institutions and helping to meet some of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals - especially those related to climate change.
