Gaps & Impacts: What’s So Special About CCS’s Aerospace Program?
2-3 p.m. EDT (11-12 p.m. PDT), Wednesday, March 25
EMSI will host a webinar to discuss our recent economic impact study and program gap analysis for Community Colleges of Spokane’s aerospace program. The report shows how the aerospace program has impacted the region and also highlights gaps or surpluses where the college can tailor its programs to better fit the needs of the aerospace industry in the Spokane area.
In the webinar, CCS provost Nancy Szofran and dean of technical education David Cox will join Gabe Rench and Brian Points from EMSI to showcase how CCS is using the report to balance programs, close gaps, and demonstrate the aerospace program’s powerful impact on not just alumni, but the entire region.
Engaging Students by Engaging Data
2-3 p.m. EDT (11-12 p.m. PDT), Thursday, April 2
As colleges grapple with enrollment, retention, and completion difficulties, it’s clear that students need a better understanding of just how a college education can help them on the path to a solid career. Community colleges play a key role in solving this problem. When colleges use data to clearly demonstrate the connection between education and the labor market, students have the information they need to choose smart careers, select the education that is right for them, and then stick with that education to the end.
In this webinar, Noah Brown, CEO of ACCT, will join Gabriel Rench, vice president of higher education at EMSI, to discuss how community colleges impact the economy, how they can demonstrate the ways they serve their students and communities, and how they can engage young people about career and education decisions before they hit college.
