Mission and 2010-2013 Strategic Priorities
To advance the career, college, and workplace readiness of youth and adults through innovation and research.
2010 - 2013 Strategic Priorities
The CEW conducts research to advance promising career development innovations and policies. We are committed to three strategic priorities: (1) optimizing career-related learning and career development for all youth and adults, (2) advancing innovative practices through research and evaluation, and (3) improving policy through evidence. Toward that end, we: (a) continuously improve web-based education and career guidance resources, (b) support professional learning communities, and (c) develop and lead innovation-and-research partnerships with schools, postsecondary institutions, workforce development providers, state agencies, and intermediary organizations. Our innovation-and-research strategy is guided by four organizational learning principles:
- Developing solutions for significant innovation priorities and compelling research questions.
- Using data from multiple sources to set targets and measure outcomes that ensure successful innovation and produce high quality research outcomes.
- Designing web-based resources that make career development and career-related learning practices accessible and integral to routine daily practice.
- Expanding the capacity of organizations, teams, and individuals to lead innovation and change through participation in professional learning communities.
