Why do employers partner with community colleges? Join Lauren Eyster, evaluator and co-author of the brief Employer Perspectives on Building Partnerships with Community Colleges: Insights for Local Leaders and Practitioners who will share findings from TAACCCT grantees on deepening levels of employer engagement and what employers did (and did not) appreciate in different partnership strategies with community colleges.
The seven-year TAACCCT program awarded nearly $2 billion to more than 700 community colleges to increase the ability of community colleges to address workforce needs. In February 2021, the Strengthening Community Colleges Training Grant launched, drawing from TAACCCT’s key priorities and findings. The Department of Labor’s Chief Evaluation Office and Employment and Training Administration are hosting a three-part roundtable series focused on sharing lessons learned from TAACCCT with current community college grantees and the wider workforce development community. Each session will feature expert speakers with time for audience Q&A.
