CTE and Workforce Development

Community colleges can play a pivotal role in both helping individuals complete credentials that translate into market value and in meeting workforce demands. We examine and assess initiatives to improve student preparation for workforce entry and advancement, and design tools to understand the impact of educational programming on students’ employment and wages.
