Radakovich, Dan; Lindsay, Susan; Osborn, Bill
In order to serve the educational needs of the business community and generate revenues, Johnson County Community College (Kansas) formed a partnership with Burlington Northern Railroad in which the railroad's training facility would be relocated on the college's campus. This report documents the development of that relationship, its purpose, and the program activities of the partnership. How this partnership was expanded to prepare people nationwide for positions with the nation's railroads is described, including its curriculum components, certification requirements, student options for completing the degree, and the railroad industry's needs. Concluding sections provide lists of sponsoring railroads and a partial list of educational institutions offering, or intending to offer, a railroad-related degree; also included are descriptions of various revenue and cost aspects of the partnership.
