Advisory board

The Center of Excellence for Careers in Education serves the community and technical college system and its respective industry.  Our model is based upon industry    responsiveness.

 As a means of gathering continual input, Careers in Education maintains an active advisory board. Comprised of educators and industry leaders, the board helps identify and shape Center related initiatives and activities.  It does so by sharing industry related needs; job skill gaps and analyzing emerging trends and new technology. Advisory Board members play an instrumental role in identifying industry priorities and connecting the Center to new partnerships and collaborations.  The advisory board meets on a quarterly basis.
