Public-Private Partnership

  • Convened by Southwest Michigan First, this critical collaboration is working to secure additional capital needs to build a centrally located career center. In the event that the public-private partnership does not work out, a portion of the CTE Millage will be used to renovate an existing building in the central part of Kalamazoo County.

    Additionally, the public-private partnership affirmed the need for highly credible labor market analysis studies to project the high-demand, high-wage jobs of the future, which will allow us tailor CTE programming around those occupational fields, promoting cross-sector collaboration for bringing meaningful and at-scale programming to life.
