Work-Integrated Learning

The University of Winnipeg Foundation


Work-Integrated Learning

UWinnipeg knows that work-integrated learning builds workforce capabilities, as well as the skills and individual prospects of students as members of the community and  Canada’s labour force.

In an interconnected global economy, a diverse, well-educated, and highly skilled workforce is critical not only to innovation, productivity, and economic growth, but also to maximizing human potential. Work-integrated learning is strongly endorsed by universities as well as employers and community partners as an important component of the overall student experience. Many UWinnipeg students take part in co-op programs, internships, field placements, or some other form of experiential learning or “work-integrated learning”. Our goal is to expand students’ access to experiential opportunities by offering new programs within a variety of departments.
