Helping Students Gain Meaningful Employment: Using LMI Data to Dramatically Improve Student Success

Learn how Achieving the Dream, Leader Lone Star College System, made the next generation decision to only offer programs and certificates in which valid Labor Market Intelligence (LMI) data show where jobs exist. With the help of Burning Glass Technologies, Lone Star College System was able to review, modify, strengthen and expand their programs to best advise and prepare students to gain meaningful in-demand employment within the community. As a result of Lone Star College System's dedication to student success, workforce certificates completion rates increased by nearly 70% over the past two years!
