Where hard work meets heart work
We are excited to welcome you to the Workforce Education Summer Collaboration: a three-day agenda packed with knowledge, networking and, of course, a whole lot of collaboration.
This year's Collaboration focuses on specific student services programs and strategies that help workforce students begin, persist and complete a workforce education program and move toward sustainable-wage jobs and careers.
This topic couldn’t be more timely. Ongoing statewide initiatives — including equity and inclusion, strategic enrollment management, completion, and redesigning systems to put students at the center — all benefit from the expertise, resources and commitment each of you brings to your campuses.
It is not simple work to knit together a system across program and functional areas, all the while relentlessly putting students at the center. It requires a commitment to endure the often slow — and sometimes messy — process of figuring out how to make resources, rules and performance requirements work collectively toward shared goals.
That is why each of you are here. You are the perfect people to work together to help weave together financial aid, workforce education, basic education for adults and other student services programs in the cause of helping workforce students find success on our campuses statewide.
Thank you for being here!
