SNHU, LRNG Merge for Learning and Workforce Solutions
Tiffany Pennamon, Diverse Issues in Higher Education
Southern New Hampshire University and the Chicago-based nonprofit LRNG are merging to provide an innovative solution that aims to create "seamless connections" between education and the workforce.
With the new partnership, SNHU and LRNG will work with cities, employers, and community-based partners to develop "digital badges," "learning playlists," or other degree programs in alignment with a city's specific educational and workforce needs. The organizations will reach "upstream" to serve pre-college young people and reach "downstream" to serve older adult learners.
