Today's global economy has forced significant changes in the way we deliver education. Nearly 70 percent of all new jobs require training beyond high school. Secondary and post-secondary institutions need to work together, now more than ever, to ensure seamless college and career transitions for students. Given this current outlook, Kirkwood, K-12 school districts and industry partners must strategically align to create a viable, educated workforce to sustain the competitive advantage and quality of life in our region. With global vision and innovative curriculum, Kirkwood is redefining the role of the community college. That vision is reaching far beyond its growing main campus in Cedar Rapids. The Linn County Regional Center is a long-term educational investment for the northern Kirkwood region.
