EDUCATION & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES OF A DOWNTURN
Over the last five years WACCT has gathered leaders from across the educational continuum in Wyoming, as well as from industry, state agencies, and the legislature, to focus on ensuring that students are prepared for college when they arrive and that they are ready to be productive members of society when they leave.
We have introduced seminal research that clarified the need for improved rates of college completion. We learned that in about five short years, two out of every three jobs in our country would require some form of postsecondary educational credential. We introduced national partners from Complete College America who offered a roadmap for improved completion and challenged us to set aggressive goals. And we heard from a high school principal and university president about the need for greater collaboration among all players in the educational continuum.
This year’s WACCT Policy Summit takes the conversation one step further – education and economic development opportunities during a downturn. The panels will focus on the need for continued effective collaboration between the K12 system, the community colleges, the University of Wyoming, and also employers. We can do more together!
