Update 6/25/2015: Recommend waiting to link response with the Taskforce on Workforce, Job Creation, and a Strong Economy. Oct - 2016 As the Strong Workforce Task Force moves on, this could be covered by that effort. Could we time something to impact the evaluation of colleges program review process in early spring? Work with Accreditation and Assessment Committee on this. Number 9 on workforce recommendations. 2017 - 18: While this resolution is 5 years old, it is still relevant and connected to SWP recommendation 9.a. The chairs of CTE LC, AAC, and Curriculum are charged with identifying a plan to address that recommendation. This resolution should be part of the conversation.
