A Unique Model
The Consortium provides a comprehensive, coordinated approach to developing a highly skilled workforce for the region. The combined efforts of the five community colleges, which emphasize advanced technical training, and a university which offers advanced education, creates a unique model for education and training.
The resources of our member institutions are available to business and industry clients through the Consortium including more than 4,000 faculty supporting over 470 certificate, associate, bachelor masters and doctorial programs, delivered at more than 60 sites. The educational institutions work with local high schools and vocational schools to assist them in adopting college credit courses for students seeking careers in specific fields.
