New Partnership Creates Training Opportunity for Utility Companies

A new training center to support incident management for the utility industry was announced today at the Western Energy Institute (WEI) Spring Operations Conference in Las Vegas.
Concordia University was recognized on the U.S. President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for the sixth year in a row.
The President’s Honor Roll recognizes higher education institutions whose community service efforts achieve meaningful outcomes in their communities. This distinction is the highest federal recognition colleges and universities can receive for community service, service-learning, and civic engagement.
They say it’s a model that has never been tried before in education: A private college partnering with an impoverished public school to build a joint state-of-the-art facility that will house both.
It’s called the 3 to PhD Initiative, and it’s happening in Northeast Portland.
