Quote from the President

“We must develop an active dialogue and integrated partnership between education and business like we’ve never seen before. Together, we have to define the skills needed for tomorrow’s jobs, chart career pathways in major industry sectors marked by discrete learning milestones and credentials, and strengthen the system with tuition assistance, workplace learning, and flexible transitions. We’re already on the way. Columbus State has engaged employers in key industries like IT, health care, insurance, and logistics to begin this dialogue."
