A MESSAGE FROM CCCAOE PRESIDENT, ROBERT CABRAL

It’s an honor and pleasure to serve you as this year’s president of CCCAOE. Our organization has come a long way in its 55-year history. We have seen a lot of changes and nothing as rapid as the change over the last 3 years. The pandemic launched us into the virtual world, we now operate under new realities and continue to make CCCAOE a vital resource for you in Career Education.

 

I will lead the work of our board supporting advocacy, professional development, and equity. These areas will guide the work we will engage in. This is our value proposition. We are Career Education – Each of us is a leader and represents a voice for career education and we all have a responsibility to shape our communities. Our stories are important, collectively they shape the work we all do and influence academic and career pathways for our students that are meaningful and support the workforce. CCCAOE allows all of us to engage in informative change and dialogue in evolving career education, workplace learning, and employer engagement. We do this in support of providing the best outcomes for students.

We all have an important role in career education. The work we do makes generational changes for students. We support economic and social mobility and remove polarization. This work matters.

-Robert
