    Mission / brief description:

    Antioch College Cooperative Education (Co-op) Program expands the boundaries of the liberal arts learning environment by immersing students in cultural immersion opportunities, collaborative research, ambitious creative projects, and other forms of socially-engaged, field-based, experiential learning in partnership with organizations off campus. The College holds high expectations that its students will be well prepared to build collaboration across cultural divides in order to address the challenges of an increasingly polarized world. Horace Mann’s 1859 inaugural baccalaureate address is quoted throughout a student’s undergraduate career: “Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.” Such counsel requires us to foster humility, compassion, and understanding of diverse communities in order to build networks of reciprocal collaboration and forge a dynamic curriculum that positions students to better understand matters of consequence through dialogue with others.
