Building Bridges

What is Building Bridges?

MCCEI’s third study, titled Building Bridges is available now for download. Building Bridges is a call to action for Maryland’s industry, education, and government to expand existing educational assets, create new assets, and simplify pathways to careers.

In past research and assessments of Maryland’s built environment industry and the K–12, postsecondary, and apprenticeship education system that produces its workforce, a recurring theme has been the persistent gap between skills that Maryland-based businesses seek and skills developed at in-state institutions. Prior to Building Bridges, numerous reports revealed that the default labor pools of Maryland’s built environment companies were out-of-state schools, given perceptions that Maryland lacks adequate built environment degree-granting programs.
