Strengthening College/Company Cooperation: An Ohio Perspective.
Moore, Ann H.; And Others
Strategies practiced by Ohio institutions to strengthen work-education relationships are described. Attention is also directed to reasons for increasing the level of cooperation between colleges and companies and factors that inhibit cooperative relationships. Colleges and universities in Ohio participate in a variety of local, regional, and statewide activities designed to improve the quality of and access to adult continuing education programs, as well as to increase cooperation among colleges, government, and companies. For many years, public and private postsecondary institutions in major metropolitan areas have participated in consortia to foster greater cooperation on a number of issues, including transferability of credit and brokering of educational services. The Ohio Board of Regents sponsored the development of regional Work and Learning Councils in several areas of the state. One of the Council's activities is to provide a system for the identification, organization, and delivery of information on education and training as well as employer needs. The Ohio Board of Regents is also involved in statewide activities to promote major policy decisions regarding cooperation between business/industry, government, and higher education. (SW)
