The Talent Imperative
Designing the postsecondary learning experience on "Education-to-Work" has become the clarion cry of American businesses to ensure inclusive civic engagement and global competitiveness. We must re-envision an “Education-and-Work” cycle that students revisit throughout their careers to retrain and upskill in response to a dynamic economy and diverse society.
How can we:
- Deepen employer partnerships and civic engagement to address workforce readiness.
- Support faculty and staff to meet changing student and employer demands.
- Prioritize diversity in hiring so students see themselves reflected in the faculty and staff.
- Develop learner pathway profiles to help students communicate their skills.
