In an effort to support community-based collaborations among key sectors—education, business, policy, and nonprofit and community organizations—IHEP planned a series of primer fact sheets that will help communities increase their postsecondary attainment. This primer explores the need to align postsecondary and employer strategies to meet the workforce needs of the 21st century, promote stronger communities, and enable our nation to compete in the global economy. This primer will be followed by a tactical guidebook available by the end of 2016 that provides further detail.
