Texas-based trade school to hold open meetings with students and faculty to discuss future opportunities on December 12
Southern Careers Institute (SCI), a Texas-based career education provider, is extending support to the students and faculty impacted by the abrupt closing of Brightwood College last week. The closures affect more than 20,000 current and entering students, including those at its 11 campuses across Texas. SCI will be holding open meetings across its seven campuses throughout Texas, to connect with students and provide them with an understanding of the transfer opportunities that exist for them to continue to pursue and complete their degrees, and also to discuss placement of the faculty left without jobs.
Nikki England, president of SCI, had this to say, “The students and faculty were delivered a devastating blow with the sudden closing of the school, and are now struggling to understand what their options are. We’re here to help them out in any way we can – whether it’s determining the optimal course for credit transfer, offering direction on enrollment opportunities, or providing information on other options the community offers for educational and career success. They’ve worked hard, and we’re here to encourage and help guide them in making difficult decisions regarding their future career path.”
England continued, “Additionally, we’ll be looking to match the talented faculty and instructors displaced by the closures with any opportunities we can at SCI, as they’ve also experienced great losses.”
Students and faculty can meet with SCI campus directors this Wednesday, December 12, 2018, at 5 p.m., across their seven campuses:
