Health Care continues to be one of the fastest growing industries in California and faces unprecedented challenges to its delivery systems. The California Community College Chancellor’s Office and it’s Economic and Workforce Development Program has established the California Community College Health Care Initiative to provide education and training programs to meet these emerging demands for health care delivery.


Economic & Workforce Development Program (EWD)

The Chancellor’s Office EWD coordinates programs and projects in the California Community Colleges that are funded through competitive grants for economic and workforce development activities. The EWD was designed to leverage resources and connections within the community college system. By linking projects together, the program can increase every project’s access to the rich and deep expertise and intellectual resources that exist in the colleges across the state. The program allows best practices that are developed in one arm of the projects to be replicated without delay or additional cost in other projects.
