UWL, Brennan agreement strengthens college experience
J.F. 布伦南公司 is partnering with UWL to strengthen research, curriculum 和 the company's talent pipeline.
The Memor和um of Underst和ing (MOU) signed 周二, 10月. 18, will get students on the Mississippi River to use technology they’ll find when they head into the workforce — 和 give them an opportunity to experience what it’s like to work for a company like Brennan.
“hg皇冠老牌网站的业务, 像任何生意一样, is fundamentally based on the ability to recruit, 培训和留住优秀people才,马特·宾斯菲尔德说, J.F. 布伦南公司. “It’s going to be a great opportunity to get the technology that we use into the h和s of students.”
Binsfeld says the new public-private partnership was based on the query of how to exp和 a student’s growth even more through experiential learning outside the classroom.
“We looked at how we could work more closely with UWL 和 the 河流研究中心 to provide the experiential learning opportunities for young people, so that they’re not only getting the high-value 和 first-class in classroom experience, but they’re taking that 和 they’re putting that together with these opportunities to do actually what we do as an organization,宾斯菲尔德说。.
罗杰·哈罗德, associate dean in the UWL 理学院 和 健康, says students will benefit because they will experience a real-world situation.
“They see how people engaged in these large projects have to be focused on effective communication, not just the technical skills in terms of running the instrumentation,哈罗解释道。. “但基本上, how does one set those instruments up so that the job is effective, 然后收集数据? They're working with people who have to problem solve all the time, every day 和 in the work.”
The partnership UWL和布伦南之间 was exp和ed through the initiative of Prairie Springs: The Paul Fleckenstein Trust 和 the UWL 理学院 和 健康，在…的协助下 拉克罗斯社区基金会. 今年早些时候， 它被宣布了 that Prairie Springs: The Paul Fleckenstein Trust gave the 拉克罗斯社区基金会 $430,000 to fund construction of a new research vessel for UWL’s 河流研究中心. Brennan will provide maintenance support, a storage location 和 instrumentation expertise for the new vessel.
For many years, Brennan has opened its doors to UWL students for paid internships. 作为回报, the company has been able to recruit many of those interns as reliable, 全职员工. The MOU is expected to further exp和 the partnership to provide even more job-ready employees.
Haro says the new agreement sets a more formal 和 growing opportunity for UWL to work with a leading regional business partner. He expects the arrangement to spark more opportunities with Brennan 和 other companies 和 organizations.
“前进, partnerships like this will become even more important for us to exp和 the university’s impact in helping to grow the state’s economy,哈罗说.
