Building a “pipeline” of people that are eager to join the water workforce is a critically important goal for creating the water workforce of the future. Academic institutions are key partners in achieving this goal.
Please join us on August 24th to hear from two institutions that are playing an important role. East Central University will discuss a new K-12 STEM-based program called Educational Program on Awareness, Sustainability, and Service for Water/Wastewater (EdPASS H2O) to educate and prepare students for apprenticeships and jobs in utilities. Grand Rapids Community College will describe a community-based program to educate and prepare students from disadvantaged communities for utility jobs in western Michigan.
