Millerville University, Faculty Senate
Committee on Centrally Administered Cooperative
1995-1996 Annual Report
The membership consists of a representative from each participating
department. This past year the committee met three times each semester.
The Program--Success and achievement describe the last twelve
months for the program. This was highlighted by the accomplishment of a
coop student from Computer Science at Air Products, being named National
Co-op Student of the Year. Additionally, Jody Burkett, dual major in
English/Speech Communication, was one of fifty students selected for the
FBI Honors Internship.
In the Fall '95 semester there were 68 student placements. They earned
223 credits and $92,094.56 in salary. In the Summer '95 there were 141
student placements. They earned 464 credits and $338,716 in salary. In
the Fall and Summer combined, 142 of the 201 placements (71%) were paid
positions. In the Spring'96 semester there were 120 student placements.
They earned 435 credits. Salary figures for this semester are not yet
Alumni and current students are contributing to the program in several
different ways. Webpage development will be helped by Nate Auvil who is
doing a summer co-op at ISSC in Tampa, FL. Our student handbook and our
brochure are also being redesigned by former co-op students Heather
Malles and Scott Gore, respectively.
Administrative--After several spirited meetings, we have
constructed a list of additional optional program requirements. These
include additional research, presentations, journals, etc. Individual
departments will determine which of the new elements they will
incorporate into their co-op/internship requirements.
Activities--Director Diane Fleishman served as the Conference
Chair for the 1995 Mid Atlantic Conference of the Cooperative Education
Association in the Fall. Dr. Bill Dorman made a presentation at the
conference on cooperative education and alumni networking.
