Access to post-secondary education continues to be a critical driver of upward mobility, providing bachelor’s degree holders higher wages and greater opportunities for advancement throughout their lifetimes. Yet a rapidly changing economy, shifting demographics and needs of students, increasing but still low completion rates, and a growing demand for 21st Century Skills are compelling higher education leaders to test new models for higher education that provide opportunities for life-long learning, more flexible education and career pathways, and opportunities to learn, apply, and communicate a broader, interdisciplinary set of skills.

Degrees from colleges and universities have historically been prerequisites for many good paying jobs. While the value of college degrees has recently been questioned by the American public, legislators, and employers, college is still viewed as an important component to the growth and socialization of learners destined to become future employees. Because they offer industry-recognized credentials, certification bodies already have a foothold in the siloed worlds of work and education and may provide an avenue to address the known gaps between employers and educational institutions. By leveraging their ability to identify the needs of employers as well as assessing knowledge and skills, certification bodies may play an important role in developing new opportunities for learners. Therefore, a pathway offering learners the ability to earn a certification while earning their degree provides individuals the ability to showcase a broad base of knowledge as well as work-relevant skills.

Faculty engagement in student success is critically linked to improved student outcomes, with outsized gains for low-income, minoritized, and first-generation students. The ability to connect with students and guide learning directly impacts retention, persistence, and ultimate progress toward graduation and post-graduate success. How faculty teach and interact with students can play a huge role in student perceptions that they matter and belong at the university, and that they can succeed academically. One of the aims of the Western Coalition cluster is to provide faculty with actionable strategies and tools for connecting with students, identifying early warning signs, and targeting support to student needs.
