Partnerships can help your organization grow and thrive, but what does this look like in reality? Dean Flanagan will be providing an update of the Blinn College District Technical and Community Education Division, formerly known as the Workforce Division. The presentation will focus on the division’s expansion and partnerships at the Texas A&M System’s RELLIS campus.
