Higher Education in San Joaquin County Meeting the Need for a Skilled Workforce
December 22, 2017
Employers are striking talent gold in San Joaquin County. Area institutions for higher education are providing valuable learning and training opportunities for students while helping regional employers access a skilled and educated workforce.
Integral to the success of workforce development are ongoing partnerships with regional employers. “We strive to build long-lasting relationships with our employer partners,” says UC Merced Chancellor Dorothy Leland. “Our Center for Career & Professional Advancement works closely with employers who hire our students and alumni, communicating on a regular basis to ensure students are acquiring the skills employers want.”
Chancellor Leland further explains that talent development at UC Merced integrates career education, civic engagement, leadership, and academic programs.
