On April 27, 2011, the U.S. Department of Education will host a Community College Virtual Symposium to present the preliminary findings of four issue briefs.
The briefs are designed to identify policies and practices that support bridge programs for low-skill adults, alignment of secondary and postsecondary education, improved developmental education, and college-employer partnerships that promote curricular change.
Department leaders, experts, and researchers will discuss their findings and respond to questions from participants. The symposium will be broadcast live via the Internet. Community college leaders, faculty, and students; business and philanthropic leaders; state and local government officials; and representatives of workforce development organizations are invited to participate.
