How Higher Ed and Private Business Can Work for Students

When higher education schools and private businesses work together, they can help students learn the skills they need to be successful as they move into the full-time workforce.  To help you understand what makes such partnerships work, AVI-SPL has created a page called “Strategies for Improving Student Success When They Join the Workforce.”

The first section of the page looks at the benefits of public-private partnerships that help train high-school students, college students, and displaced workers so they are prepared for their chosen career. It also includes a Q&A with Tracie Bryant-Cravens, AVI-SPL VP of Sales for State/Local Government & Education. Tracie explains why these partnerships between higher education and private organizations result in improved education and career opportunities.
