Workforce Development Partnership Program

To facilitate continuing efforts to promote workforce development and training, the ATLAS Center at UMTRI will establish partnerships with community colleges in Southeastern Michigan. UMTRI has support from the Workforce Intelligence Network (WIN), a coalition committed to strengthening the workforce of the Southeastern Michigan region by identifying needs, sharing resources, and developing collaborative training solutions to support economic development. Many of the community colleges associated with WIN offer specific transportation-related degrees and training options, making the network an ideal partner for the ATLAS Center to build its workforce development capability. UMTRI is working with WIN to develop and evaluate curriculum and workforce development resources, as well as identify opportunities to support the individual community colleges in expanding their program offerings related to transportation safety careers.

The ATLAS Center is a collaboration between the University of Michigan (U-M) Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) and Texas A&M Transportation Institute
