Overview of Internships and CWEE Program

Cooperative Work Experience Education (CWEE) is a work-based learning program in which employees or volunteer workers earn college credit for what they learn on the job.  In most cases the credit earned will be part of a degree or certificate program at the college. 

Units are awarded based on the completion of learning objectives that have specific and measureable outcomes. The college instructor, employee/student, and employer work cooperatively create learning objectives. The learning objectives must be appropriate for the job, meet the needs of the employer, and meet the requirements of a college-level learning experience.

The typical CWEE student is an employee who enrolls in CWEE and then meets with the supervisor to enlist the supervisor’s involvement and to discuss potential learning objectives. This benefits the student by earning them college credit; it also benefits the employer by having a more capable and versatile employee.
