Hi-Ed Council Conducting Needs Assessment Survey

May 14, 2024

WARREN, Pa. — Looking to enhance educational opportunities and meet the community’s needs, the Warren Forest Higher Education Council is conducting a Warren County Needs Assessment Survey.

Two surveys are available on the Council’s website, one tailored for individuals and another for businesses. The individual survey is open to all residents 18 years and older. Participation is voluntary and all responses are confidential.

“We believe that every voice matters in the journey towards educational excellence and equity,” said Joan Stitzinger, Executive Director at Warren Forest Higher Education Council. “The Education Needs Assessment Surveys provide a platform for individuals and businesses to express their perspectives and help us prioritize our efforts in enhancing educational opportunities for everyone.”

The surveys cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • Access to educational resources and facilities
  • Perspectives on the current state of education in our community
  • Challenges faced by adults to access education
  • Desired areas for improvement in the post-secondary education system
  • Suggestions for improving the alignment between education and workforce needs

“Education is the cornerstone of progress, shaping the future of individuals and communities alike,” the Council said in a release. “Understanding the specific needs, challenges, and aspirations of our community members is essential for creating effective educational programs and initiatives. The survey for individuals aims to gather valuable insights directly from residents across Warren County.”

The individual survey will aid the Council in “the development of strategies and policies aimed at addressing identified needs and fostering a more inclusive and supportive learning environment for all.” While businesses can help the Council identify ways to “enhance education and workforce development.”

“Warren Forest Higher Education Council encourages everyone to take a few moments to complete the survey and contribute to shaping the future of education in our community,” the Council said in a release. “Together, we can empower education and build a brighter future for generations to come.”
