Connecting Credentials

On October 5, 2015, some 200 individuals representing nearly 170 organizations gathered in Washington, D.C., for a one-day summit on a critical issue: the need for change in our nation’s fragmented system of credentialing. The National Summit on Credentialing was convened by three organizations – the Corporation for a Skilled Workforce (CSW), the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), and Lumina Foundation – on behalf of the Connecting Credentials partnership. The summit represented a  first step in articulating a shared vision of a reformed credentialing system – one that will better serve the needs of today’s students, employers and educators.
