About the Center
The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce is an independent, nonprofit research and policy institute affiliated with the Georgetown McCourt School of Public Policy that studies the link between education, career qualifications, and workforce demands.
The Center conducts research in three core areas with the goal of better aligning education and training with workforce and labor market demand: jobs, skills, and people.
- JOBS: Our first research focus is on the historic and future labor market supply and labor market demand for education, with secondary interest in occupation and industrial clusters at the national and sub-national levels.
- SKILLS: Our second research focus is on connecting 21st Century competencies with education, training, and applied learning pathways.
- PEOPLE: Our third research focus is on identifying the effect of changing job requirements and skill demand on students and the current workforce, with a focus on varying degrees of access and success by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status.
The Center seeks to inform and educate federal, state, and local policymakers and stakeholders on ways to better align education and training with labor market demand and qualifications. It also seeks to create tools that enable decision makers to access and customize the data to allow for national, state, and sub-state analysis.
