Developing and retaining a diverse talent pool is critical to a strong and sustainable regional economy. The Higher Education Initiative is led by a roundtable of higher education presidents and senior business executives working collaboratively to strengthen the competitiveness of our current and future workforce.
Current efforts focus on developing educator-employer partnerships, including expanding internship and experiential learning opportunities, adapting to the effects of disruptive technologies and increasing overall educational attainment levels by improving the readiness of students entering college.
