Burlington is increasingly recognized as a growing hub for tech and a hot spot for startups. By creating partnerships with areas companies and organizations, Champlain College breaks down the walls between the workplace and the classroom.

Employer Relations

We prioritize employer relations by seeking out regional and national employers, meeting with alumni, and engaging faculty to develop partnerships that are dedicated to training and hiring students.

Champlain literally puts you in the real world on your first day. You’re coding for projects that people on Church Street need to get done. You’re doing photography projects for local businesses. You’re ACTIVELY BECOMING a member of this society rather than learning what it LOOKS like to become a member.
