Algoma University believes in the pursuit of “Truth, Knowledge, and Wisdom.” As our nation and global community face unprecedented challenges, so too do our post-secondary students and graduates seeking employment. Our learn and work from home environment, coupled with widespread cutbacks, make it harder for post-secondary students and graduates to apply what’s learned in the classroom and earn a living. Becoming a campus partner of Orbis and joining Outcome Campus Connect is a display of the University’s deep commitment to supporting their students and preparing them for what’s next.
“When our graduates reflect on their Algoma U experience, we hope that it will be defined by more than what they’ve learned in the classroom. Our dedication to our students goes beyond campus, extending into care for each unique individual, their well-being, and fulfillment,” said Cindi Elgie, coordinator, co-op & experiential learning at Algoma University. “Joining OCC was an easy decision for us as it reinforces our mandate, allowing us to enrich our support for students with a direct feed of co-op, WIL, and job opportunities, right when they need it most. Remote access gives our graduates the right tools to take on current challenges and successfully navigate tomorrow,” she continued.
Funded by the Government of Canada’s Student Work Placement Program, Outcome Campus Connect is freely available to all post-secondary institutions and students across the country. It is an always-available network bound by the Government of Canada, employers, higher learning campus partners, and delivery partners, supporting post-secondary students with the skill development, opportunities, and employment fundamental to their futures. The goal of the network is to bring at least 1 WIL experience to every post-secondary student before graduation.
“We are thrilled to have Algoma University join our network and the OCC community. We know that remote access to opportunities meaningful to their students will have widespread and longterm positive impacts,” said Devin Grady, Co-founder of Orbis & Outcome Campus Connect.
