- Interested in sharing our best practices and collaborating with postsecondary institutions around the nation.
- Work focuses on initiative “Leveraging Industry Credentials to Drive Quality Equity and Completion.” Identified criteria to determine the value of credentials (certifications, licenses, certificates). Focus is to bring transparency to all learners that all credentials are not created equal. Have started the process of meeting with Student Services Departments to highlight in-demand certifications/licenses that can lead to higher wage careers.
- In 2021, with assistance of the Office of Institutional Research, demographic information was provided for students who are required to sit for licensure/certification exams after completing a program. This allowed programs to be able to identify gender and race equity gaps. This information is also now officially published in the HCC Vitality report. HCC uses the Program Vitality Report to create a glance of the performance of all of its workforce programs and awards oﬀered by each. The report covers a span of 5 years as well as latest information available for this academic year. This year’s report provides a breakdown of all program speciﬁc degrees and certiﬁcates as well as information regarding the latest labor market data for the program.
