Many within the system may be aware that Minnesota State, along with the Office of Higher Education (OHE) and Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) is engaged in a credential transparency collaboration to post Minnesota programs and credentials on a national registry. Our partner, Credential Engine is hosting the FREE conference described below. Please join us if you can to learn more about the credential transparency movement.
State policymakers and agencies have critical roles in ensuring their residents and employers have the information they need to make well-informed decisions about credentials. Join Credential Engine to learn about “State Solutions & Opportunities for a More Transparent Credential Landscape.” Minnesota State Colleges and Universities is a proud partner and participant in the convening. You will gain concrete solutions and opportunities states can leverage to address the current lack of clarity in and access to the credential information we need to better decipher education and career pathways.
