Session Description:

Transparency in Higher Education: Workforce Development and your Institution

For decades, college degrees have been an important component to workforce development. With a national dialog focused on the value and importance of college degrees juxtaposed with non-degree credentials from alternative credential providers, transparency in higher education has never been more important. Credential Engine, a non-profit organization focused on creating transparency in the credential marketplace, is working with institutions, industry groups, states, and national organizations to create collaborations and new opportunities in the workforce ecosystem. Join leaders in credentialing as they discuss the benefits of being involved in this important movement in workforce development.
