For decades, continuing and workforce education have been sitting on the periphery of most institutions, even though they drive tremendous revenue and enrollment growth. Continuing and workforce education have the expertise in meeting the needs of non-traditional students, which have now become  modern learners. As we move into this new era of higher education, what role do continuing and workforce education play in delivering the mission of the modern community college?

As skill gaps between education and the workforce continue to grow,it’s time for change. Institutions and industries have to work closer together to align programming with employer needs.
