Central College has received a grant of $50,000 from Precision Pulley & Idler (PPI), a Pella-based manufacturing company, to develop a “decision science” curriculum. This new program will focus on artificial intelligence, analytics, and digital transformation. Decision science elements are already present in some teaching practices at the college and the grant will enable faculty to formalize these elements into a new program and possibly introduce new courses.

Central College President Mark Putnam expressed gratitude for the partnership with PPI and emphasized the need to respond to evolving workforce demands through initiatives like the decision science curriculum. The partnership between Central College and PPI is expected to address changes in workplaces, the introduction of new technologies, and shifts in business and consumer behaviors. Leslie Johnston, PPI’s vice president of human resources, highlighted the company’s pride in supporting Central College and its efforts to provide impactful education to students that align with current and future business needs.
