Seniors honored for their outstanding co-ops

Coop Awards

Northeastern hon­ored a group of extra­or­di­nary seniors on Thursday after­noon at the Coop­er­a­tive Edu­ca­tion Awards, an annual cer­e­mony high­lighting stu­dents who’ve demon­strated out­standing accom­plish­ments on their co-​​op expe­ri­ences across the globe.

In opening remarks, Susan Ambrose, senior vice provost for under­grad­uate edu­ca­tion and expe­ri­en­tial learning, noted that “co-​​op both com­ple­ments and sup­ple­ments our aca­d­emic cur­riculum by enabling stu­dents to enact the knowl­edge, skills, and per­spec­tives they have in authentic con­texts, which helps to deepen and strengthen their knowledge.”
