Quantifying Business Engagement

The research team will develop a business engagement index based on business partnership and industry engagement research.  A mixed methods approach will be used to develop the index. A rubric for this index will take into account factors that demonstrate specific actionable criteria and the level of collaboration between the educational organization and the business.
