Career and Work Integrated Learning (CIL): A Multi-Year Research Project

The CIL project is a student-focused research project which is designed to help students become more aware of the competencies they may gain through their university courses. Students and faculty from across Memorial’s campus' have participated in this research and it has gained considerable interest from other universities across Canada. This website was developed as a platform for the dissemination of our work on this project.
