Alignment of Community & Education Industry Summit

APSU's College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics recently organized and hosted the Alignment of Community and Education Industry Summit.

Representatives from several major area employers including Google, LG Electronics, and Hankook Tire Manufacturing were in attendance as well as other local business and community leaders and educators from in and around Montgomery County.

“As a community partner and regional educator, APSU is hosting this summit to gather these parties in the same room to identify the gaps, and then to develop a plan to address those gaps,” said Dr. Karen Meisch, interim dean of the College of STEM.. “We are all invested in the success of Clarksville and want to know how we can make any improvements necessary to address the recommendations of the Economic Development Council.”

“This summit is about reaching out to initiate the conversation of how to better align regional educational programs with the needs of regional industry.”
