Getting in Line for Opportunity: Putting Extra Emphasis on Workforce Development Access for Underserved Students
Guth, Douglas J.
Community College Journal, v93 n5 p26-31 Apr-May 2023
Inequity in workforce programming has been historically difficult to address for community colleges trying to meet labor market demands. Even a concentration on placing Black and Latino students into high-demand jobs is not much use when those opportunities sit at the lower end of the wage scale. Yet, access to life-changing careers remains an essential issue that some two-year institutions are focusing on more closely than ever. Colleges are now launching bilingual cohort programs or intentional ecosystems of access and equity, a series of big swings meant to guide underserved populations into lucrative employment.
