Learning Commons Co-Op Opportunity

Working in the Learning Commons is a recognized campus co-op. A component of your first term of employment includes mandatory registration in a one-credit hour professional development course (COOP 1000) with the Division of Experience-Based Learning and Career Education. In cases where registration would incur a cost, there is a 0-credit option. In addition, there are a limited number of recognized exemptions to this requirement. You can learn more about the class below and about the enrollment criteria and exemptions via the position acceptance form.  

By enrolling in COOP 1000, Learning Commons employees will have the opportunity to

  • Receive additional professional development coaching
  • Earn experiential learning credit
  • Get valuable feedback from faculty in Experience-Based Learning and Career Education 
  • Develop leadership skills and translate your work experience on campus for future employment

For Honor’s students, this course is the only way to earn an Honors experience through the Learning Commons during your first semester of employment. Questions about your Honors experience requirements can be directed to your Honors Advisor.
