Business, Industry, and Community Partnerships

  • A critical ingredient to a thriving local economy is a ready supply of diverse, skilled talent. Students are an underutilized resource of knowledge capital whose potential to contribute in a professional setting in impactful ways is often underestimated. Business, industry and community partnerships play a key role in creating access to quality experiences that allow students to see how their interests, aptitudes, and skills connect to local work opportunities. Employers can get involved in Work-Based Learning in a variety of ways that make sense for them; providing students with hands-on, authentic problem-solving experiences, and connections to professional resources.
