"Out of this appropriation, $568,000 the second year from the general fund is designated to support an educational partnership between regional K12; community college; University of Mary Washington and industry to develop a curriculum that accelerates time to degree; lowers cost; eliminates the skills gap and reduces reliance on student debt in the areas of Education, Healthcare, and Cybersecurity."


(This amendment provides $568,000 GF for the University of Mary Washington’s Workforce Development Initiative. This initiative partners three K-12 school districts, a community college, a public liberal arts university, and industry to develop a curriculum that accelerates time to degree, lowers cost of attendance, eliminates the skills gap that exists between educational experiences and works, reduces the reliance on student load debt to finance both degree competencies required to compete in the 21st century, and produces career-ready graduates whose experiences will empower them both socially and economically into their futures.)
