A Big DEAL for Little Rhody and Community Colleges
Meghan Hughes and Julian Assid, Community College Daily
Rhode Island is now home to a key experiment designed to align education and workforce development that will produce benefits for college students, employers, and the digital economy. At the center of this experiment: Infosys and the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI).
As part of their collaboration, CCRI and Infosys will research and develop customized curriculum tied to a four-year degree pathway that focuses on in-demand industries, including health care, defense, advanced business services, and manufacturing. A mentoring program will engage Infosys business teams to bolster career guidance for students.
