Higher Education and Employability: New Models for Integrating Study and Work
Stokes, Peter J.
Harvard Education Press
"Higher Education and Employability" makes a crucial contribution to the current reassessment of higher education in the United States by focusing on how colleges and universities can collaborate with businesses in order to serve the educational and professional interests of their students. Drawing on his extensive experience with universities and the business world, Peter J. Stokes argues that the need for closer alignment between the two sectors has never been more critical--and that the opportunities for partnership have never been greater. This book includes a series of trenchant case studies of particular universities that have developed ambitious collaborative programs--New York University, Northeastern University, and the Georgia Institute of Technology. Incisive and practical, this book surveys the full range of current partnerships between businesses and higher education and points to opportunities that will best serve students now and in the future.
