In October of 2016, the California State University Long Beach Research Foundation was awarded FHWA Grant #DTHF6116H00030, the $1.25M Transportation Workforce Strategic Initiative, on behalf of the National Network for the Transportation Workforce (NNTW). The NNTW is a university-based collaborative of regional transportation workforce centers that provide research and strategic partnerships for FHWA’s Office of Innovative Program Delivery.

Over the course of its two-year lifespan, this strategic initiative sought to establish a set of five transportation discipline-focused career pathways that could be deployed within post-secondary education/training institutions nationwide, in order to begin the development of forward-looking, technology-infused workforce pipelines that would lead students and job seekers into critical occupations within the highway transportation sector.
