BEAR Press Release

A presentation on Aug. 29 will be made by Gary Straquedine, Associate Vice President and Vice Provost for Career and Technical Education for USU Eastern, to the Castle Country Business Expansion and Retention general board. He will speak about the way USU Eastern is changing its programs to accommodate students and their needs, particularly in the area of technology and skill-based education.

The concept of stacked credentials, or the idea of allowing certifications, certificates and degrees to add up to advanced training and employment opportunities, will be discussed as well as open entry/open exit programs for students in certain types of disciplines.

BEAR’s mission is to inform, grow and improve business in the Castle Country area. The meeting will start at 8 a.m. and light refreshments will be served. Each general meeting never lasts more than one hour. BEAR meetings are held at the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center in the Alumni Room on the USU Eastern Campus in Price.
