Build & Grow Relationships

The best policies are based on data-driven research, using engaged, diverse stakeholders and by fostering thought that motivates people to think regionally. It is a process that CREC has done successfully since 2009, and it has helped expand our client base and grow communities. Clients vary from single municipalities and private-sector firms:

• Cities • Think tanks
• States • National organizations

Client Profile

Multi-State Advanced Manufacturing Consortium (M-SAMC)

The Multi-State Advanced Manufacturing Consortium (M-SAMC), designs innovative program models that improve manufacturing education. With 13 college partners across 10 states, more than 40 industrial partners, and state-of-the-art technology, M-SAMC leverages its combined experiences to increase student success locally, and it brings manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. nationally.

M-SAMC’s colleges bridge the gap between the needs of the workplace and the manufacturing curriculum to pave the way for job-driven training, and it empowers student workers to meet the demands of today’s careers by thriving in high-wage, high-skill occupations.
