Business Partner Survey Request

CUC Business Partner Survey
Monday, February 12 – 15

As the intended plan for the Capital University Center in Pierre transitions due to a number of changes in the educational environment both nationally and in the State, there is an opportunity to not only rethink how the Capital University Center should be used, but to rethink what the educational needs are for preparing a workforce for our economic future. The question to ask is “Are we educating our central South Dakota students with the right skills that will produce both the best qualified workforce for our industries, and provide the students with the skills needed to succeed in a 21st Century world?” In other words, are we connecting the educational outcomes with current workforce demands?

As we relook at how we intend to use the tremendous asset we have in central South Dakota in the Capital University Center, we need to first examine the needs of our regional economy as it relates to our workforce and try to build educational programming that supports these needs. In order to better understand these regional workforce needs, we are asking regional industry leaders to fill out the following survey. From this survey and one that is been provided to regional high school students, we intend to gather the data needed to help us rethink and reimagine how we need to educate our students both at the secondary and postsecondary level.

We would ask that you complete the business partner survey by February 15th.  SURVEY LINK
