Center on Education and the Workforce
The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce is an independent, nonprofit research and policy institute affiliated with the Georgetown Public Policy Institute that studies the link between education, career qualifications, and workforce demands.
Core Research: The Center conducts research in three core areas with the goal of better aligning education and training with workforce and labor market demand: jobs, skills, and people.
JOBS: Our first research focus is on the historic and future labor market supply and labor market demand for education, with secondary interest in occupation and industrial clusters at the national and sub-national levels.
SKILLS: Our second research focus is on connecting 21st Century competencies with education, training, and applied learning pathways.
PEOPLE: Our third research focus is on identifying the effect of changing job requirements and skill demand on students and the current workforce, with a focus on varying degrees of access and success by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status.
