This paper presents the work of a two-year community college building a comprehensive collaborative infrastructure with a research university, seven high schools, and five industry partners in North Louisiana. The five main goals in this collaborative infrastructure were establishing (1) a management structure, (2) one primary high school partner, (3) two academic transfer agreements, (4) an Industrial Advisory Board of three members, and (5) seven additional high school partners to scale future implementation.
Three of these goals were fully accomplished within the planned timeline, and the two others were partially accomplished. This paper discusses detailed achievements in each area along with the project’s external evaluation results and the project leadership team’s lessons learned. The partnership infrastructure that has been built will be used to build the skilled technical workforce in North Louisiana through increasing high school students’ awareness of and preparation for careers in instrumentation and manufacturing.
