Now in its 4th year, the Bishop Launch Program (BLP) helps students become confident, competent, and competitive internship and job seekers. BLP targets Sophomore & Junior students and helps them secure internships/jobs and successfully launch into careers post OWU.

The 2020-2021 academic year will feature a combination of virtual and in-person options to meet students' needs.
