Cooperative Work Experience (CWE) at Clackamas Community College
connects students with area employers to gain valuable experience
in their area of study. CCC will host an Employer Recognition event
for employers involved with CWE students on Tuesday, June 11, from
4 to 6 p.m. in the Gregory Forum.
CWE is an internship program that enables students to earn
college credit by working in a job directly related to their field
of study. The experience links students, area employers and faculty
advisers in valuable on-the-job learning.
The CWE experience offers expanding learning experiences through
exposure to actual work situations, organizational relationships,
equipment and techniques that can't be replicated in the classroom.

gather information to improve the internship experience for both
employers and students.
The June 11 event will include refreshments, a brief
presentation on CWE and recognition of employers that work with the
program. For information, please contact Pam Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
