STRIDE Workforce Development Summit Empowers Transportation Professionals to Solve the Congestion Challenges of the Future

Earlier this year, STRIDE spearheaded a project led by Dr. Nithin Agarwal, director of the University of Florida Transportation Institute’s (UFTI) Technology Transfer (T2) Center, which focused on transforming transportation education and practices in the southeastern United States. The “Transportation Workforce Development Related to Traffic Signal Systems – Phase II (Technology)” project funded by the STRIDE Center was designed to equip transportation students and professionals with the skills needed to address traffic congestion effectively. As a significant component of this project, the UFTI’s T2 Center, in collaboration with Dr. Dimitra Michalaka of The Citadel and Dr. Steven Click of Tennessee Technological University, organized the STRIDE Workforce Development Summit. The success of the Workforce Development Summit can be attributed to the thorough planning efforts of the project team led by Dr. Agarwal, which included the collaborators and the T2 team members.
