UAlberta, Luther College, UVic forge WIL partnerships with BHER


The University of Alberta, the University of Regina’s Luther College, and the University of Victoria have each forged work-integrated learning (WIL) partnerships with the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER). As BHER’s WIL partners, the three postsecondary institutions will support Canada’s transition to a net-zero economy while preparing students for their careers with green skills. The partnerships will enable the development of community-engaged projects focused on the net-zero transition with 150 small- and medium-sized companies and not-for-profits. They will also create climate-focused collaboration opportunities with local businesses and organizations for over 1,100 students.
