Episode 8 - A Better Way to Judge Higher Ed Outcomes

Higher education institutions are rarely rewarded for successfully building career pathways for students. Jen Dirmeyer recognized this problem and set out to certify colleges and universities based on their workforce outcomes by starting the Workforce Talent Educators Association (WTEA).

Host Dr. Jason Altmire talks with Dirmeyer, managing director and chief accreditation officer of WTEA, about why WTEA focuses on workforce outcomes and quality assurance, rather than how programs are delivered. They discuss WTEA’s Career Impact Audit, the connection between institutions and employers, and having third-party verification of workforce outcomes.
