Educator and Employer Dialogue

There should be an ongoing dialogue between educators and employers to ensure that educators understand the career opportunities available to graduates, the competencies and skills employers are seeking from graduates, and what colleges and universities can do to increase the probabilities that graduates will find quality jobs.

HR Policy Association has initiated such a dialogue with the Education Commission of the States and with Presidents of the Auto Communities Consortium of community colleges to share perspectives on changes that could be made to ensure graduates have better opportunities to enter the workforce upon graduation.
