FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Council on Postsecondary Education has partnered with six colleges and universities to launch an employability initiative.

A statement from the council says the initiative is designed to make sure that students who graduate from higher education programs have essential employability qualities including people skills, problem-solving abilities and professional strengths such as work ethic and technological agility.

Council on Postsecondary Education President Aaron Thompson said the program will build bridges from the classroom to the workplace by adding value to degrees earned and fulfilling the needs of employers.

The institutions participating in the initiative include Bluegrass Community and Technical College, Gateway Community and Technical College, Jefferson Community and Technical College, Kentucky State University, Murray State University and the University of Kentucky.
