About

Access and empowerment are the driving forces behind the office of Economic & Workforce Development, serving the needs of both our students and our community.  By creating unique educational and workforce initiatives, we bridge the gap between the classroom and the marketplace, preparing students to seek entry-level employment and implement effective job skill upgrades.  With diligence and determination, it is our ongoing mission to inspire a diverse student body to transform their lives, drive regional economic development, and build global engagement and understanding.
