Project overview

Connecticut pilot program

NEBHE has partnered with The Business- Higher Education Forum (BHEF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing career readiness and equity for all students by building academically accredited pathways to high-demand knowledge, skills and abilities. Since 2012, BHEF has established over three dozen regional ecosystems to expand opportunities for thousands of students, particularly those from economically disadvantaged and underrepresented minority groups. BHEF and NEBHE will work together to implement a 18- month pilot project in Connecticut to work with companies, community colleges, government agencies and other stake-holders to develop pathways for under and unemployed adults interested in learning digital skills and acquiring academic credentials in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
