Alabama, Louisiana, and Minnesota Commit to Transparent Credential Data
Alabama, Louisiana, and Minnesota announced today (August 15) their commitment to credential transparency by joining as state partners to Credential Engine—the national nonprofit dedicated to credential data transparency and literacy. Through the partnership, the lead agencies—Alabama’s Office of the Governor, Louisiana’s Community and Technical College System, and the Minnesota State system—will collaborate with partner agencies to publish data, including education and career outcomes, for thousands of apprenticeships, certificates, licenses, degrees, and other credentials to the cloud-based Credential Registry in an effort to bring clarity, understanding, and improved utility to state education data.
The partnership brings the total number of states and regions partnering with Credential Engine to publish information about their education and training programs to 14. Together, these states are transforming their education and workforce efforts by ensuring their data on credentials, what they represent, and how they connect to larger state efforts is comprehensive and accessible to students, consumers, and employers.
