100th Anniversary Celebration of Co-op! 10.18.2012

RIT's cooperative education program, which kicked off in 1912 with 32 students at a dozen local companies, turns 100 years old this academic year. Although it has transformed from providing the local economy with skilled workers to a global initiative, the goal of getting students solid jobs after graduation remains the same. The Rochester Institute of Technology's co-op program is recognized as one of the oldest and largest in the world.
