Research of an outreach to industry alumni to identify weak points in our graduates competencies and attempting to close those gaps through various recommending various resources for the administration to offer.
With the ever changing landscape of the Healthcare Industry constantly requiring new and different functions of its employees, ensuring that recent graduate competencies meet those changing needs is of top priority to Colleges of Public Health nationwide. Preparing students for success in a dynamic work environment requires adaptability, feedback channels, and most importantly knowledge of where to improve their coursework and of what employers are currently seeking.
Vision 2025 Commitment
With Oregon State just recently earning its accreditation as a College of Public Health, there is room for growth in many areas, something made clear in the Vision 2025 Plan Published by the leadership of the College. This plan outlines experiential and collaborative learning initiatives that enrich the students academic experience and better prepares them for the professional environment. Designing innovative and applicable programming that offers this type of educational experience requires constant quality improvement measures so that the experiences stay relevant, and truly prepare them for issues faced by the actual workforce.
There have been many attempts to leverage the Alumni Community in order to connect students to the industry, however this effort has been unsuccessful on many fronts. Many have worked to establish a database of alumnus, hold networking events and generally engage those who are now in the healthcare industry with limited success. The prospect of opening a connection that better engages Alumni, and offers them benefit in the form of better prepared students entering the workforce opens opportunities for both students and employers.
