Community College and Workforce Development

CCWD: Featured Work

The HECC Office of Workforce Development (CCWD) collaborates with postsecondary institutions and workforce partners to achieve educational and workforce goals for Oregon. Often these efforts include projects that cross sectors and stakeholder groups, including:

  • Mathematics Alignment Across Sectors: HECC has worked with community colleges and public universities to assist with the alignment and creation of a new “quantitative literacy” pathway from community college to public university, which is reflected in updated math requirements in the statewide Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree.

  • Affordability Initiatives, including Open Education Resources and the Oregon Promise
