NC3 is excited to support a new president study of community college workforce education through Opportunity America and funded by the Lumina Foundation. We are proud to support this initiative and encourage all NC3 schools to participate!
At a time of dwindling education spending, the results will feature essential information for state and federal policymakers – evidence to support increased funding for workforce education.
Institutions that take part will be entered in a drawing, and three will receive donations of up to $10,000 to fund scholarships for noncredit workforce students.
Participating institutions will also receive customized reports that allow them to compare their institutions to an aggregate of other colleges that take part – a tool for planning and innovation.
The study is targeted to post-secondary education institutions.
We recommend institutions complete the survey in collaboration of the College President, Dean and/or Vice President of Workforce Development and supportive administration.
Note, the survey is “open” which enables multiple staff members to collect and provide data, save it, and return to the draft before completing the submission.
The study isn’t open long! Please complete the survey link below by January 1, 2021. NC3 will continue to educate our network on the survey results and donation funds through updates from Opportunity America and the Lumina Foundation.
