MacEwan student working at a field placement at Fort Edmonton

When you host a MacEwan student at your not-for-profit organization, private business, government department or industry-based enterprise, the talents they bring to the placement are impressive—as are the benefits to you and your organization. 

Hosting our students helps you by:

  • Raising the profile of your organization 

  • Assigning a dedicated person to complete specific tasks or projects

  • Developing a pool of potential recruits with an awareness of your workplace culture and a specific set of skills/knowledge suited to your organization

  • Strengthening partnerships with MacEwan University programs and services areas

  • Creating staff development opportunities through student mentorship

At MacEwan University, over 30 programs provide students with Work Integrated Learning (WIL) opportunities. Our students have participated as communications assistants during provincial elections, led program planning for live theatre venues and supported local start ups with business planning. If you'd like to learn more about the benefits of providing these types of opportunities, or if you'd like to host a student, please contact Experiential Learning.
