SLU named Tier 1 institution for career planning
HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University has been listed as a Tier 1 institution for career planning by Educate to Career, a non-profit organization that serves as a resource for educational attainment, outcomes-based personalized college and career planning, and related financial planning, data and programs in the U.S. Southeastern was selected as one of the “Best Colleges for Career Planning Curriculum.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ETC recently amended its selection criteria. Schools chosen as Tier 1 institutions had to meet the following criteria: a physical campus for in-classroom instruction should the health authorities allow colleges to open in September; robust software and systems to support distance learning programs; faculty experience in teaching online; and reasonable tuition and fees on a relative basis.
“Students and their parents are extremely cautious about college value today,” said Educate to Career President Michael R. Havis. “They want an affordable education that will put them on a pathway to a real career. Southeastern has proven its ability to deliver a meaningful education, while keeping tuition affordable.”
According to Educate to Career’s website, the Best Colleges for Career Planning Curriculum was created to help students prepare for the new normal in college and ultimately, the labor market.
“Our employment model shows the industries that will provide the strongest job opportunities in coming years, and the colleges that will best prepare students for those jobs,” Havis said. “Again, Southeastern is listed as a Tier 1 institution for being up to the task.”
