Reality learning

December 2005

One of the University of Cincinnati's most significant gifts to the world was cooperative education nearly 100 years ago. Not only has the co-op program grown and changed significantly since then, but it has also served as the inspiration and structural support needed to develop reality learning across the entire campus. UC is now poised to become a national leader in real-world education.
