Bradley's Centralized Cooperative Education and Internship Program

With the establishment of the Marjorie and Bill Springer Center for Excellence in Internships in 2008, Bradley University and the Smith Career Center rededicated the commitment to providing students with opportunities for career-related work experience. The Center provides resources to help students secure meaningful internships, co-ops, and part-time jobs. A centralized Cooperative Education and Internship Program provides students with the opportunity to register their internship for official transcript notation and possible credit. Contact Dawn Koeltzow at the Smith Career Center for more information.

Bradley students actively pursue opportunities for experiential learning. In the recent First Destination Study Report, 94% of the Bradley graduates participated in experiential learning and 77% conducted internships.
