The Indianapolis Star
 
United Parcel Service announced this morning that it will establish a new workforce advisory board to bring together businesses and community colleges to develop better methods and more specific curricula to train the next generation of U.S. workers.

The announcement was made at Ivy Tech's Indianapolis campus where nearly 200 community college leaders from around the Midwest have gathered for a day long conference - the third of four regional conferences put on by the U.S. Department of Education.

The conference is exploring ways to develop and expand such business-college partnerships that often serve as a way for displaced workers to get the training, degree and certification the need to move into a new career.

The UPS model already is being done in Louisville and Chicago, where more than 15,000 community college students have taken advantage of the partnership.
