The Wisconsin Center for Education Research is launching a new initiative, the Center for Research on College-Workforce Transitions (CCWT), to study and help inform how college students can be better prepared to enter the competitive 21st-century job market. WCER researcher Matthew Hora is CCWT’s director and an assistant professor of adult and higher education in continuing studies at UW–Madison. Hora is a co-author of, “Beyond the Skills Gap,” which details a landmark NSF-funded study examining the cultural, political and economic issues underlying the skills-gap debate in Wisconsin.
