Business & Industry Partnerships

The primary goal of our Career and College Readiness program is to create and foster long term industry partnerships, to ensure the course curriculum remains applicable to “real-world” applications, and provide students with clear connections between their coursework and career opportunities.

Below are some examples of how industry partners can support our program:

  • Provide support to the program and instructor  through curriculum development, mentoring and grants.
  • Be an active member of the program advisory group.
  • Provide industry expert guest speaking (we frequently use video conferencing for this).
  • Provide tours of facilities to showcase sustainable principles.
  • Provide job shadow, internships, and apprenticeship opportunities for students.
  • Advise students for the year end capstone projects.
  • Hosting and judging the year end capstone project tradeshow.
  • Provide career coaching and scholarship awards to students.
