Dear Colleagues:

Does your college offer certificates or degrees that combine meaningful, high-quality on-the-job experience with classroom learning?  If so, have you considered a Career Launch endorsement?

To be designated as a Career Launch program, the program must first be endorsed. This endorsement also unlocks the door for certain types of state funding. Learn more about the endorsement and the program review process.<https://www.sbctc.edu/career-launch/career-launch-endorsement-review.aspx>
