Education Council


Create opportunities for higher education

The education council's primary objectives are:

Collaboration between educational institutions and industry partners is often challenging. It can be difficult to break through competing agendas to ensure that educational programs provide students with the skills they need to succeed. Additionally, finding partners for internship programs, work-study, capstone projects, and industry mentoring partners is a huge undertaking, requiring institutions to devote scarce resources to develop projects and timelines in hopes that companies will sign on. 

Our Solution
