Fulfilling the Promise

“We have a bold vision to create 50,000 jobs over the next eight to nine years as part of the region’s Vision 2015. And 30,000 of those jobs will require two years or less of college. So the workforce solution that Gateway provides is all those technical workforce jobs that are the kinds of jobs that are in manufacturing, that are in health care and other high demand areas. If we don’t maintain that job bank and that talent movement, we simply will not be able to compete with the global society, let alone Cincinnati and Indiana and the rest of Kentucky. Gateway fulfills a major role in this community as the workforce solution”

Dr. G. Edward Hughes, President and Chief Executive Officer
Gateway Community and Technical College

It takes all parts of a community to build and maintain a great community. Northern Kentucky has a bold vision for 2015. We have a bold vision as well.  We are the post-high school education and workforce solution of that vision, but it needs increased private, corporate and philanthropic partnership investments if we are to fulfill our promise to students, employees, and the region. 

The return on your investment will include:

  • State-of-the-art teaching facilities that attract 10,000 students per term by 2015 into high tech, high wage careers;
  • Adequate scholarships to meet the financial needs of all students so they can attain at least one year of education and training beyond high school;
  • A new Urban Campus in the heart of Covington that will serve 2,500 new students with new opportunities for improved quality of life through education and training;
  • New faculty and staff so that we can produce sufficient job-ready graduates for the workforce and up to 2,000 transfer students for bachelor degree programs annually;
  • Resources sufficient to permit all of our programs to achieve the highest levels of distinction and accreditation;
  • A permanent source of endowed funds to enable us to create programs and services needed by the community, business and industry.

Creating a partnership with Gateway is an investment in the economic and social vibrancy of the region. It is an investment in the lives of people who will provide the technological workforce that will change this region in decades to come. It is also an investment that gives people hope for a new life. With the community’s help, we will indeed fulfill the Vision 2015 promise.
