ASU, Howard College Partnership
May 30, 2013
Angelo State University and Howard College in San Angelo have established a partnership that will enhance continuing education opportunities and workforce training options for individuals and companies in the Concho Valley.
The continuing education partnership will use Howard College faculty and ASU faculty and facilities to expand existing offerings in professional development, workforce training and lifelong learning. The cooperative agreement is designed to meet the region’s growing need for expanded training and maximize the resources of both institutions to meet those area needs.
ASU President Dr. Brian J. May and Howard College President Dr. Cheryl T. Sparks announced the partnership, which will offer its first courses in June.
“This partnership,” said May, “further strengthens Angelo State’s and Howard College’s joint commitment to meeting the region’s educational needs and provides the flexibility to address new training requirements as they evolve to meet the area’s economic development opportunities.”
Sparks said, “We are excited to be partnering with ASU in the endeavor to provide more continuing education opportunities for the people of San Angelo and the Concho Valley area. The possibilities are endless, and I am confident that through the partnership with ASU, we can develop and add more courses to meet training needs from professional development to workforce training to lifelong learning.”
Jamie Rainey, workforce training director for Howard College, will administer the partnership and oversee course offerings, scheduling and continuing education credit.
