To ensure greater social mobility for minoritized communities, whether high school graduates or displaced workers, colleges must provide relevant information associated with all careers, link academic pathways to all programs of study, with clear connections between learning outcomes and job competencies. Achieving this requires colleges and universities to implement CCA’s Purpose strategies at scale, aligning the work of business and industry professionals with postsecondary institutions across two-year and four-year spaces, all the while ensuring a comprehensive transition from high school to college. 
The anticipated outcomes for this project are: 
  • Updated onboarding process that includes assisted career exploration, regional labor/market data, and unbiased advising. 
  • Database of preferred competencies for careers and high-demand jobs at the regional level. 
  • Comprehensive academic maps that include potential career outcomes. 
  • Preliminary plan for faculty members to integrate competencies on syllabi. 
  • Common understanding requiring need for career information and academic/career alignment for all pathways at the institutional and state levels.
