The success of our Pilot Program has quickly led to other initiatives. Read below about our current work and stay posted on our new projects as they come online! 

The Kentucky EEQ Certification Initiative

The Kentucky EEQ Certification Initiative is ultimately intended to serve as a national model for how educators and employers can work together for student success.

To help strengthen Kentucky’s workforce, the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE), has partnered with us to develop this 18-month, statewide initiative, which launched in November of 2018. Our Stakeholder Advisory Committee convenes employers and provosts in Kentucky to link employer needs with the certification process.


The Kentucky Employability Faculty Fellows Program

In response to initial findings through Kentucky’s participation in EEQ Certification, a ten month Fellowship program has been designed in order to get faculty more involved in creating cultures supporting employability. The Fellows will engage directly with regional and statewide employers and policy makers and undertake original research projects. Through this direct interaction, the goal is to enable faculty to learn first-hand Kentucky’s workforce needs, employer concerns and views of the role higher education needs to play, and at the same time, provide opportunities for faculty to share their successes and challenges in attempting to address these workforce needs.

Meet the Fellows.
