About the Project
The Building Pathways To Innovation (PTI) Through Strategic Employer Engagement (DUE 2039395) project builds on the ATE-supported Business & Industry Leadership Team (BILT) model, a proven method for strategic employer engagement developed by the National Convergence Technology Center. Colleges involved in PTI will develop employer relationships that yield workforce intelligence at a depth and with a frequency that facilitates continuous program improvement and innovation. Through technical assistance leveraging ATE’s capacity-building resources and the BILT model, PTI will foster a culture of innovation co-led by employers and college faculty.
PTI is led by the Center for Occupational Research and Development (CORD) in partnership with subject-matter experts from across the ATE Community.
