Bridging the Gap from Education to Employment
Bridging the Gap from Education to Employment (BGEE) is a University Innovation Alliance project that aims to close the gap between college and career for today’s undergraduates, particularly those from low-income and first-generation backgrounds. Between 2018 and 2020, the BGEE project will:
• Convene cross-sector groups within and outside of participating universities, including campus stakeholders across institutions and local, regional, and national employers
• Use human-centered design principles to develop actionable, collective impact solutions with campus partners and employers
• Identify promising practices to scale on participating campuses and share in a dynamic national playbook
Through these activities, the BGEE project seeks to enhance career development to meet the unique needs of all students; expand robust university-employer partnerships, and improve career outcomes for undergraduates at participating institutions and across the country.
