Co-op Ambassador Program (CAP)

2018-2019 Co-op Ambassadors

Co-op Ambassadors represent the Cooperative Education Program at UA functions across campus. This representation includes, but certainly is not limited to, class presentations, student and other organization meetings, and meetings with prospective students, families, and alumni. Class presentations and on-campus organization presentations are typically made in preparation for Interview Day and other designated Co-op sponsored events. The presentations can range from 5 minutes to a full-class session.

To be eligible for the Co-op Ambassador Program students must meet a list of requirements including a 3.0 UA GPA, completion of two work semesters as a Co-op Student, and be available to commit to serve for fall and spring semesters. Interested students submit an application, along with resume and essay. Finalists are then interviewed and may be asked to prepare a 5 minute presentation about Co-op during the interview.
