The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) in Murfreesboro, Tenn., has received national recognition for not only the concrete industry's financial support, but for the industry's leadership's involvement in developing practical and useful educational experience.

Two new regional groups have started establishing the concrete industry management program as part of their own curriculum. This fall semester, Arizona State University begins offering CIM classes to freshmen. And soon there will be an East Coast opportunity.
