Employer Outreach Activities
Meet with employers individually to discuss joint interests and how you might partner to benefit both the employers and the college.
Initiate conversations at the company CEO and college president level to discuss ways your college could benefit from their voice at local, state, and national legislative forums.
After you have brainstormed the initiatives your employers are passionate about, look for an intersection where your college can assist them, and they can assist you. Joint efforts around technical skills training and apprenticeships, for example, are natural ways to collaborate.
Branding efforts which include the use of a company logo/name at your college, whether for a lab or a building, is one way to incorporate your joint interests. It demonstrates the highest level of trust between the two organizations, which the college must be dedicated to upholding every day.
