Students, parents and others interested in more information on the Work Colleges:
The Work Colleges all share the ethos and culture of Work-Learning-Service and ALL resident students at Work Colleges are required to work; but that is where the similarities end. Each Work College is a unique institution – no two are the same. The eight member colleges of the Consortium vary greatly in their individual missions, size, program offerings, and location. If you are interested in more information on any of the schools go the Member Colleges tab where you can explore each college in greater depth. You will find a downloadable “Fast Facts” sheet for each school, along with a dedicated button for each college’s website.
We think Work Colleges provide one of the best educational experiences available. Every student at a Work College is offered a job that enhances their education. The job might align with your program of study or open up an entirely new world of opportunity. Students are fully relied upon as contributing members of the campus workforce. The responsibility students take on and the skills they acquire are real. They interact with faculty and staff who serve as work supervisors, teachers and mentors. If you are ready to take on responsibility and engage in your education in a vibrant and dynamic way while reducing your college costs – attending a Work College might be right for you!
