Roger Dalton, ANU vice president of government affairs, and the directors of the six ANU Kentucky Campuses recently participated in the Kentucky Association of Career Colleges and Schools (KACCS) Spring Symposium.
Roger, who also serves as the chairman of the board for the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Schools (APSCU), joined Greg Brotzge, of Impact Government Relations, in presenting the keynote address during the event. During their presentation, Roger and Greg shared a report on the status of postsecondary career education at the national level.
“There is a growing demand for occupational career skills and we are leading the effort to meet this need,” Roger stated. Approximately 55 million job openings are expected by 2025—31 million due to retirements and 24 million new jobs. It’s estimated that 65% of the replacement jobs and 85% of new jobs will require some level of postsecondary education.
The symposium also featured a variety of break out and round table sessions, including an informative presentation by Misty Edwards, executive director of the Kentucky Commission on Proprietary Education, as well as sessions on increasing online student engagement, and on incorporating cell phones as classroom learning tools.
