Our Economic Opportunity team aims to dramatically increase the attainment of market relevant credentials in order to connect more learners, especially in vulnerable populations, to family-sustaining careers.
We help colleges institute policies and practices that increase credential attainment and good employment options for their students. Our strategies help colleges strengthen access to, persistence toward, and attainment of market relevant credentials that better ensure graduates obtain good jobs.
We also contribute to large scale, nationwide adoption of a shared competency-based credentialing agenda while simultaneously helping local, state or national partners test and apply effective competency-based credentialing approaches. Our strategies strengthen the alignment between educational attainment and labor markets in the U.S.
