There’s no better classroom than the job itself.
Welcome to Work U, Boise State’s College of Innovation and Design’s approach to develop nimble, in the moment leaders. Launching fall 2016 with our initial partner St. Luke’s Regional Health Systems, we place dynamic students from diverse academic disciplines in a work setting where their contribution counts. Each student will use this hands on experience as a weekly case study during a coaching and professional development roundtable. Supported by mentors from both their workplace and Boise State, students will have the opportunity to gain valuable professional skills including communication, critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, and leadership. Work U will not only help you prepare for the workplace, but will provide you with opportunities to expand your professional network. Work U dissolves the barrier between classroom knowledge and workplace success. Join us in this new pathway of higher education!
