Making ConneXions: Equipping Innovative Students for 21st Century Careers
The Career Pathways Initiative, funded by Lilly Endowment Inc. in collaboration with the United Negro College Fund, aims to improve the ability of institutions to serve their two primary stakeholders: students who rely on institutions to prepare them for life after graduation and employers who look for well-prepared college graduates. To simultaneously serve both students and employers, four institutions have deepened their support for students by: more intentionally integrating education and career preparation through stronger, more effective internships, career counseling, etc.; increasing awareness of professional job market requirements; and reconsidering knowledge 21st century students need in the workforce of tomorrow.
