Center of Excellence (COE)


Center of ExcellenceThe California Community Colleges Economic and Workforce Development (EWD) program is the statewide network for the delivery of education and training services to businesses, workers, and jobseekers in key growth industries and new technologies.


One of EWD’s ten regionally based sectoral initiatives, the Centers of Excellence support the community colleges by providing customized data on high growth, emerging, and economically-critical industries and occupations and their related workforce needs. These seven Centers, located strategically to study the regional economies of California, produce industry-validated environmental scan reports designed to enable community colleges to remain relevant and responsive in their offerings.
