Workforce and Economic Development Master Plan

The 2015 Workforce and Economic Development (WED) Master Plan steering committee articulated the need for a broader focus that included both internal and external issues and partners, along with practical approaches to increase responsiveness to the region’s changing economy and labor market needs. This plan will guide Workforce and Economic Development faculty and staff in:

  • Developing up-to-date, data-driven workforce education and training
  • Improving organizational processes for communicating with the business community and marketing WED resources and services
  • Creating targeted student support programs and services and integrating these into the menu of workforce development offerings
  • Developing and sustaining funding and other resources to support and grow effective WED practices
