The Power of Partnership: Economic Development Program of the California Community Colleges. Annual Report 1992-1993.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.
California Community Colleges (CCC's) provide a statewide network of centers and programs to assist the state's businesses and industries with education, training, and information services. This report describes outcomes for these economic development partnerships between the CCC's and business, industry, and government during the 1992-93 fiscal year, focusing on programs and services directly funded by the Chancellor's Office. Following introductory materials, including a list of development partnerships and their locations, part one provides an overview of the CCC's Economic Development Network (ED>Net), describing partnerships with government and industry and efforts to provide technical assistance to colleges to improve the delivery of these services. Part two reviews the CCC's economic development agenda, highlighting partnerships for local economic development; strategies for defense conversion; programs to enhance workforce skills; and job opportunities created through small business support, including programs for special populations and new services for business. Part three focuses on efforts to meet changing workforce needs, including new and updated curricula, employer-based training, technology transfer to help defense workers find new jobs, and customized contract services. A special insert provides descriptions of seven partnerships between CCC's and small businesses to establish economic development programs, focusing on the development and results of the programs.
