This toolkit, created by Brookings Institute, offers practical advice on how community college leaders can take a deliberate approach to communication with potential partners in their community, including local businesses and industry leaders.

This toolkit includes three sections, each of which discusses practical strategies that college leaders can tailor to their own circumstances to build and maintain productive relationships with industry partners. 

These recommendations are based on lessons learned from existing research and from conversations with industry and community college leaders as well as intermediaries.
