Oregon's education models must reflect industry and student needs

February 21, 2018View for printing

Kate Brown emphasized in her recent State of the State address, it is vital that we pivot our focus in higher education toward technical education and industry needs while making sure programs are uniquely tailored to diverse students. Career-focused workforce development is key to ensuring economic prosperity for all Oregonians.
