Midwest Credential Transparency Alliance (MCTA) Kick-Off Meeting

Date & Time
May 13, 2021 - 2:00pm - May 13, 2021 - 4:00pm CDT

With over 100,000 credentials being offered in the Midwest and no consistent way to compare them, it is important to bring clarity and accessibility to information about the full range of credentials leading to careers. The objective for this meeting is to bring together key stakeholders from across the Midwest region to foster an alliance around credential transparency. Credential transparency is an approach to making essential information about credentials and competencies public, easily accessible, and actionable so that credentials can be better understood and pursued based on what it takes to earn them, what they represent, and the jobs they can lead to.

MHEC and Credential Engine have designed an engaging agenda that will help build professional networks across the Midwest and identify key topics for future engagement. Whether you are just beginning to explore this topic, or are further along with your development, we welcome you to the Alliance.

  • State government officials: Legislators, leaders, Governor’s office staff, and staff connected with state education and workforce departments, agencies, & commissions
