Creating career communities at Sinclair Community College


How might we reorganize academic and support services around “career communities” to help students understand, access, and pursue pathways leading to career opportunities in the community?


Two-pronged effort: 

  • Launched career communities to provide students with targeted support based on their program of study
  • Included business leaders on advisory boards for the career communities


Career communities helped establish stronger connections among students, despite Sinclair being a commuter campus. Communities have also contributed to greater faculty interaction and collaboration.
