Central College is introducing a new curriculum that focuses on decision science, with the support of Precision Pulley & Idler (PPI), a manufacturing company based in Pella, Iowa. The $50,000 planning grant awarded to Central College by PPI will help formalize decision science into a new program and potentially introduce new courses.

The decision science curriculum will incorporate elements of artificial intelligence, analytics, and digital transformation. It will also connect various departments within the college such as math, computer science, and business. According to Mary Strey, vice president for academic affairs at Central College, some aspects of decision science are already present in the current teaching methods. The grant from PPI will enable faculty and industry experts to develop a curriculum that addresses changes in the workforce, new technologies, and evolving business practices.

Central College President Mark Putnam expressed gratitude for the support from PPI and emphasized the importance of partnerships with industry leaders to shape the future of education at Central College. Leslie Johnston, vice president of human resources at PPI, highlighted the company’s pride in supporting Central College as it enhances its programs to benefit students and businesses both now and in the future.

The collaboration between Central College and PPI aims to create a curriculum that aligns with the needs of the current and future labor market, ensuring that students are equipped with the skills required to succeed in the business world.
