Why should colleges and universities use local and regional labor market data? What purpose does it serve? To Todd Oldham of Monroe Community College, proper data analysis—coupled with business surveys and other employer engagement—is all about “informing our educational response” to the needs of regional employers.
In a free, one-hour webinar on April 19, Oldham (the VP of Economic Development and Innovative Workforce Services at MCC) will walk through the steps the Rochester, New York, college has taken to effectively use data for program development. Oldham will detail MCC’s vision for using and presenting data to drive program decisions and will go into hands-on applications and tips for doing this type of analysis at your college. Under Oldham’s leadership, MCC has attracted national attention and won major grants for its approach to measuring and filling skills gaps by developing career pathways and industry-focused accelerated programs.
