In 2012, Bio-Link organized a summit in St. Louis, MO, to discuss the role of community colleges in stimulating economic development and providing students with workforce experience. Representatives from several Bio-Link programs; InnovaBIO (Salt Lake Community College), St. Louis Community College Florrissant Valley, Pasadena City College, and the Florida State College at Jacksonville; discussed their models for providing student work experiences and their methods for supporting local industry.
In spring, we will revisit those findings and learn more about creative approaches for providing student work experiences and about new efforts by community colleges to establish college-led incubators.
You are invited to join this discussion and participate in the CSO Summit 2.0 in Austin, TX.
