Employer Perspectives on Building Partnerships with Community Colleges: Insights for Local Leaders and Practitioners

Abstract

From 2011 to 2018, the US Department of Labor administered the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program, which awarded $1.9 billion to institutions of higher education with programs of two years or less, mainly community colleges. Colleges sought to increase their capacity to provide education and training to adults in need of new skills for in-demand jobs. This brief, part of a series of publications from the TAACCCT national evaluation, offers insights for local leaders and practitioners, based on interviews with 41 employers, to help them tailor their own approaches to developing and maintaining strong employer-college relationships.
