Transforming Higher Education

"Five years ago I stepped into the role of vice chancellor for Workforce and Economic Development of the California Community Colleges, one of the largest higher education systems in the nation with 113 community colleges and over 2.1 million students. At the time, the system faced declining support for workforce programs and career technical education (CTE). State funding for community college CTE had either been cut - some by as much as 50 percent -or flexed, meaning the dollars could be used for non-workforce related uses. Additionally, foundations did not see the relevancy of investing in CTE. Since then the workforce mission of California's 113 community colleges has undergone a significant turnaround - from an afterthought to a state policy priority - growing from $100 million to $900 million in funding. How did we do it? A unifying framework set the foundation for intrapreneurship and innovations-at-scale."
