Sector Priorities

Helping your business grow

Economic and Workforce Development (EWD) is an integral part of the California Community Colleges and its Doing What Matters for Jobs and the Economy framework, investing funding and resources in industry sectors that are key to California’s economic growth.

We serve California business and industry in two ways.

  1. Industry Specific Partnerships – Doing What Matters is a concerted effort among California Community Colleges to partner with California business and industry and work together to find solutions to regional workforce issues pertaining to California’s high growth sectors.
