Good partnerships between educators and industry partners are the quintessential win-win scenario. For most institutions, the question isn’t whether to pursue these partnerships, but how. To help answer this question, Emsi is hosting a masterclass webinar on Tuesday, September 24 at 2pm EDT (11am PDT) with Jeff Spain, workforce solutions senior consultant, and Scott Wegeng, director of employer engagement and experiential learning at Columbus State Community College. Don’t miss out as they share lessons they’ve learned along the way, and get into the nuts and bolts of cultivating and maintaining industry partnerships!
As new technologies and increasingly sophisticated, high-skill jobs continue to emerge, pressure is increasing for higher education institutions to deliver workers prepared to thrive in this dynamic market.
In this environment, staying relevant and proving value means keeping programs up-to-date and aligned with market demand through frequent program review and development.

At community colleges across the country, unnecessary credits have become a problematic norm, delaying completion and costing students precious time and money in the process. The question for educators is: “How can we help students choose the right classes and graduate on time?” In this case study, see how Lee College in Baytown, TX is using Career Coach as part of a comprehensive plan to help students clarify their goals and stay on their selected pathway.
Every year, hundreds of colleges and universities use Career Coach to help their students explore careers, find the right academic program, and take the next step by applying for jobs in their local area. Here are two updates we introduced recently to make Career Coach an even more effective tool for educators and the students they serve.
