Higher ed leaders discuss vision behind workforce development - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

The Department of Education recently debuted a pilot program to spur public and private partnerships benefiting workforce development, an unprecedented program which will pair colleges with for-profit companies to offer degrees and job training in select industries. We spoke with officials from three of those institutions, Tuskegee University President Brian Johnson, Purdue University Homeland Security Institute Director J. Eric Dietz and University of Wisconsin Extension Dean of Continuing Education, Outreach and E-Learning David Schejbal, who discussed the vision behind pairing academic programs with industrial partners, structuring programs to meet workforce demand, and the future of industrial development in their respective regions, and throughout the nation.
