The Division of Professional Practice at the University of Cincinnati is leading the way in experiential learning.

The Division leads the Cooperative Education Program, which for over 100 years has provided students with the opportunity to alternate full-time terms of school and work to provide them with a solid base of experience and professional development.

The European Experiential Learning Program will give students the opportunity to travel to Turin, Italy, Milan, Italy and Barcelona Spain.  This is a 3 credit hour undergraduate course which can be used for an elective or as an international experience. Students will visit businesses in each of these three cities and attend multiple cultural sites.

In 2010, the Division launched the Academic Internship Program, which provides access to opportunities for part time internships to all UC students.

The Singapore Experience combines cultural, academic, and professional development experiences to help you expand your knowledge, strengthen your confidence, and gain a competitive advantage in the global marketplace.  Join the Singapore Listserv to receive updates about the program.

The Center for Cooperative Education Research and Innovation seeks to drive the development and implementation of cooperative education at UC as well as serve as an incubator  for research and new thinking about approaches to experiential education.

In 2011, a Center for Service Learning and Civic Engagement was established at UC and was charged with supporting campus-community connections as articulated within the goals of UC2019► and the Integrated Core Learning Initiative.
