First CSRA Education Coop educational fair planned
In mid-September, representatives from CSRA colleges and universities met to discuss the formation of a new educational group - the CSRA Educational Cooperative - with the purpose of sharing programs and educational opportunities offered in the CSRA to the community through planned events and meetings.
Companies can contact the coop to present educational information to its employees. It benefits its members and the community because each school differs in its degrees and program styles and potential students can be directed to the right program fit.
The first coop educational fair is scheduled for the week of Nov. 18-22, which is American Education Week.
