CorpU, a social learning platform, and Jobs for the Future, a national nonprofit that focuses on addressing workforce demands, have assembled the College Employer Collaborative (CEC), a group of community colleges and employers that will work with CorpU to develop college curricula and credentials intended to meet the needs of high-growth industries. The CEC aims to help rectify the situation by developing online courses geared toward the skills employers are looking for in employees. “Community colleges have always been a critical pipeline of talent,” said Brian Inbody, president of Neosho County Community College, in a prepared statement. “By working with employers to actually develop course content, we are able to help students develop high-demand skills in the context of a meaningful academic environment.”
