Harper wins grant to teach supply chain management
Harper College in Palatine has been awarded a $1.1 million federal grant to set up a supply chain management program in conjunction with Northwestern University and industry partners.
The Leveraging, Integrating, Networking, Coordinating Supplies Consortium will develop a set of eight stackable and latticed credentials that will provide workers with skills suitable for entry and middle level employment in supply chain management.
Program content will be delivered through traditional, hybrid and online instruction. Industry approved internships, apprenticeships and on-the-job training will be included.
The eight newly created industry recognized certifications will be based on an evidence-based design endorsed by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals.
Specifically, Harper College will use funds to develop these certifications for local students, create an SCM computer lab and engage with students and employers for outreach and job placement.
Harper's partners include Eagle Training Services, Motorola Solutions, Northrop Grumman, UPS, the Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership, Schaumburg Business Association and the Schaumburg Center for Economic Development.
The grant will allow the consortium to develop eight new national, industry-certified certificates for supply chain management from the warehouse skills to the CEO.
