Associate Dean Solberg to Present at Minnesota Youth Comprehensive Career Development Summit

Associate Dean of Research V. Scott Solberg will be presenting at the Minnesota Youth Comprehensive Career Development Summit, hosted by the Minnesota Youth Comprehensive Career Development Initiative Committee.

The Summit will gather leaders in education and workforce development. Attendees will work together to develop new ways to provide career-readiness guidance for youths after high school. The ideas and practices shared and discussed will affect how state and regional partners “meet the challenges of creating stronger collaborations among secondary, post-secondary, workforce, and community agencies,” according to Denise Felder, iSeek Solutions, Minnesota Youth Comprehensive Career Development Initiative Committee.

Associate Dean Solberg, who is also a professor of counseling and human development, will present his most recent research. His research focuses on how schools use individualized learning plans (ILP) to facilitate college and career readiness among youth with and without disabilities.

The Summit will be held at the Minnesota Department of Education, on Friday, November 16, 9am to 12pm.
