Will the future of private college support come through employer partnerships?

While 65% of City University of New York’s budget runs off city and state support, one university president believes the future of private institution support needs to come through employer partnerships.

Reported by Education Dive, Jayson Boyers, president of Cleary University, believes industry-education partnerships may provide the revenue stream diversity so needed by private institutions.

These local employers receive the workforce development and training they so desperately need, our students receive employer-funded education, and our institutions move away from a precarious personal-debt funded financial model.

The takeaway? How do we make sure our communities and employers see our institutions as integral partners in their workforce and economic development?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
