The Center on Education and Training for Employment is committed to translating research into practices resulting in a prepared and effective workforce and healthy communities that support well-being and economic prosperity. Our associates conduct scholarship; support faculty, staff, and students engaged in research and development efforts; and create learning experiences within the context of education, workforce, and community development.
The overview below highlights just a few of the center’s priorities in our commitment to developing a workforce of the future, including socioeconomic mobility, online learning, and the Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (REDI) Movement.
