Private Sector Partnerships to Strengthen Higher Education Activity

USAID funded Activity



The University of Iowa, in cooperation with the Iowa State University and Kosova Education Center, is seeking to fill the following positions under a five-year USAID-funded activity that aims to strengthen private sector partnerships with higher education institutions, and support development of market-oriented and experiential learning approaches.


The Activity will be implemented by the Iowa Consortium made up of Iowa’s two world-class research universities, the University of Iowa (UI) and Iowa State University (ISU), and its local partner the Kosova Education Center (KEC), a leading non-governmental organization (NGO) focused on educational training, analytics, and leadership development.


The Activity will be driven by companies and industry leaders from Kosovo’s Agriculture (Ag) and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sectors.

Programmatic activities and interventions include collaborating with the private sector and institutions of higher education to achieve curricular reforms aligned with labor market needs, building capacities for university applied research in Kosovo’s major industries and markets, and assuring that Kosovo’s university graduates have experiences that optimally translate to professional success for themselves and their employers.
