On March 19, 2018, the Commission on Higher Education and Employability released its final report. It details 19 recommendations, as well as strategies for stakeholders to collaborate to increase the employability of the region’s graduates.
A college degree matters more than ever before. In the post-recession economy, job gains have been far better for those with college degrees than for those with only a high school degree. Students are clear that a primary purpose for enrolling in college is to get a good job and to put themselves on a path to a successful career. Employers and the public increasingly feel that universities are not doing enough to prepare students for employment. Universities feel a degree must involve a broad education, though certainly many—probably most—in the public university community agree on the need to prepare students for employment. Broader education and employment preparation are not mutually exclusive goals, nor have they ever been.
