Working With Industry

Sharing Best Practices in Business & Industry Partnerships

In June 2011, the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) in partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF) hosted the Broadening Impact conference. This marked the first time that NSF brought together over 300 representative principal investigators (PIs) from all NSF programs open to two-year colleges. Activities at the conference included Principal Investigator-led breakout sessions that included one on Sharing Best Practices in Business and Industry Partnerships. The session included 35 attendees in addition to the 3 facilitators, with an overarching goal to identify and share best practices regarding building, maintaining and strengthening partnerships between community colleges and business and industry entities.
