“It’s a great strategic partnership,” said Academic and Professional Programs Director Dayle Thorpe. “Careerminds’ three-month program is exactly what our adult students need as they prepare to re-enter the workforce. We had been considering a number of solutions to address the growing need of assisting our students after they finish a program. Careerminds was the clear choice in helping us reach our goals while providing an innovative approach to the career transition process.”
