CTE – Career and Technical Education

Catholic Business Advisory Council

On March 19th, Dr. Mari Thomas, CISE CTE Consultant, gathered 26 educational and community leaders for the inaugural Catholic Business Advisory Council (BAC).

The purpose of the newly formed Catholic BAC is threefold: engage in dialogue, build a collective understanding, and begin to identify strategies that transform the student learning experience. One participant shared that this was an impressive and high-quality BAC with an economically diverse group of community partners. The energy and excitement to explore and build out business and educational partnerships was palpable. In the words of one BAC participant, the Catholic BAC “is doing good and necessary work.”

The next Catholic BAC will take place on May 14, 2024.
