Joining forces to keep college graduates in Indiana.
It’s rare to see such rivals as Indiana University and Purdue University teaming up — but that’s what they are doing to get students who graduate from their respective school to find jobs with Indiana companies.
Both universities are teaming up with Ascend Indiana to do that.
Ascend Indiana is essentially a collective organization of hundreds of Hoosier businesses that’s dedicated to filling jobs that need to be filled by skilled workers.
Both schools say they are also able to use feedback from Ascend to adjust their curriculums in order to tailor to employment needs.
