The University of Pittsburgh is pleased to help bring this program to life, and we’re especially grateful to the 3Rivers Workforce Investment Board for funding it. The program combines strong community-based action by Garfield Jubilee with a great community college, some recent work at our University on motivation, and the major contributions of University of Pittsburgh alumnus Dr. Richard Goldman in the creation of Smart Horizons Career Online Education.
