Your students and advisees rely on you for the very best guidance.  Here's a simple checklist:


  • Perform effective entry assessments of students to determine the most realistic and effective career pathways
  • Expedite student connections to the job market with relevant coursework, certifications, and just-in-time training offered in the classroom, offsite, and online.
  • Offer accredited programs that capture and cultivate student interest in STEM/manufacturing, and award post-secondary credits to high school students who work with mentors to learn entry-level trade skills.
  • Enter into strategic partnerships with national and/or local industry that lead to well-informed curricula that reflect job market demands and offer access to an array of in-kind support. This support should include teacher training, industry professionals and tradesmen/women as teacher and student mentors, simulators, facilities, work-study programs, and internships.
  • Track and report metrics that show the correlations between field of study/mentoring/ job placement/employability of graduates.
