Join Us 3/3: Redesigning Higher Ed to Support New Majority Learners’ Engagement See Announcement

Careers + How to Get Involved at the Lab

We believe that by working on the ground with learners, institutions, and employers across the learn-to-work ecosystem, we can build a more relevant, accessible, portable, and visible education system for learners. We are committed to equity and to co-creating a more just and equitable education system. Join our team in building education for the future of work.

Open Positions:

CUNY Innovation Coach, Community College Growth Engine Fund

As part of the national Community College Growth Engine Fund initiative (CCGEF), the Education Design Lab is leading a system-wide micro-pathway initiative with the City University of New York. Six community colleges located throughout the boroughs of New York City will co-design with employers, policy experts, high schools, community-based organizations, and other ecosystem partners in developing employer-validated micro-pathways to be adopted across the entire CUNY system. CCGEF-CUNY will accelerate institutional change and build in critical resources to drive education-to-workforce ecosystem collaboration, powering student access to greater social and economic mobility – especially at a time where New Yorkers and the city need it the most.

Senior Education Designer, Community College Growth Engine Fund

We’re seeking a Senior Education Designer to lead the Fund’s on-the-ground work around the country testing “micro-pathways” as a cutting edge higher education model to improve outcomes for “new majority learners.” These are the growing majority of learners for whom college was not designed, including first-in-family college attendees, lower-income and underpaid working adults, single parents, students of color, and English-language learners.

At a critical moment in the national conversation about workforce development and the role of community colleges, you will work directly with a dozen of the most innovative institutions around the country to support the development and implementation of 18 micro-pathways that can be national models.
