The Indispensable Institution: Reimagining Community College
Project on Workforce Faculty Lead Joseph Fuller and Senior Advisor Bob Schwartz participated in a national working group developing a strategy for the role of America's community colleges in reskilling the workforce.
As the nation rebuilds in the wake of the pandemic, millions of Americans will need fast, job-focused upskilling and reskilling before they can return to work. No institution is better positioned to take up the challenge – new demand for safety training, technical training, IT training and more – than the nation’s 1,100 two-year community and technical colleges.
A new report by a group of educators and education policy thinkers outlines a strategy for community colleges – urging them to step up in the wake of the COVID crisis as the nation’s premier provider of workforce education.
