OP-TEC Newsletter – November 2017

The first item in this newsletter describes another national study that validates the benefits of associate degrees for technicians, as compared to many bachelor degrees.

Several other briefings in this issue highlight interesting, useful events and internship opportunities for students, as well as new student outreach strategies. Please send information to OP-TEC about noteworthy efforts that you have facilitated for your college. As we commemorate Veterans Day during November, please remember to provide student recruitment outreach to our returning veterans. An excellent source of highly qualified students!

I recommend that you consider using OP-TEC’s lab videos to introduce and enrich the labs for your students. Links to these free videos are provided in the last article, below.
