2/13/2013

     On February 11, J.F. Drake State Technical College hosted a group from South Africa who are part of a program called Community Colleges: A Project for South Africa.
     The project allows the participants to explore best practices for administration of community colleges and schools and provide them with strategies for building relationships with local industry. They are also able to examine the role that community colleges can play in improving opportunities for disadvantaged populations and discuss the changing role of community colleges due to knowledge demands of adult learners.
     The group toured the college and met with faculty and staff and members of the Student Government Association.
