Addressing gap between jobs, qualified applicants

The College of Education, the College of Engineering and the College of Business and Economics met jointly this month to hear a presentation by Bob Lokken, founder and CEO of WhiteCloud Analytics.

Lokken also is an active member of Idaho Business for Education, a group of Idaho business leaders who champion improvements in K-12 education. His presentation focused on his study on the needs of Idaho’s businesses for university graduates, and the gap between business needs and higher education’s ability to meet those needs. Watch the presentation online.
