We provide the highest quality training and education to businesses in the greater Philadelphia region.

Who We Are

The Collegiate Consortium for Workforce & Economic Development is a non-profit organization that is a partnership of Drexel University and five area community colleges: Community College of Philadelphia, Delaware County Community College, Bucks County Community College, Camden County College and Montgomery County Community College.

We create courses that are customized to fit your needs and are delivered at your site or at one of our institutions’ campuses. We encourage students to work within the region while continuing to pursue college certifications and degrees.

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.

Development and delivery of learning modules was very professional and timely. A true pleasure to work with, I would most definitely engage the Consortium again when in need of external continuing education assistance for our workforce.

This special partnership between UPS and the Consortium has been recognized by our corporate staff as a model for other regions throughout the county to follow. It has created more opportunity for UPS to recruit and interact with students as well as faculty at the partnership schools.
