What is the CO-OP Student Association (CSA)?

The CO-OP Student Association (CSA), which is made up of current CO-OP students, aims to enhance the CO-OP experience and help students get the most out of their CO-OP program opportunities. CSA members are here to listen, advise and connect, in order to generate a sense of community among University of Ottawa CO-OP students.

What is our mission?

CSA runs orientation sessions, helps students resolve faculty and departmental issues, and organizes social events. The Association encourages exchanges between CO-OP peers to help improve student satisfaction and increase motivation. The CSA brings junior and senior CO-OP students together to share experiences and information on the placement process, CO-OP work terms, and the work term report.
