 Workforce and Economic Development 

Workforce and Economic Development brings together community colleges, offices of economic development, workforce boards, labor market entities, employers, and other organizations to improve the economic prosperity of business, workers, and communities. Working with public and private sector partners, AACC provides technical assistance to member colleges to promote the alignment of priorities, strategies, and resources with those of workforce and economic development partners in response to regional labor market needs.


1. Improved economic prosperity of workers, business, and communities. 

2. Increased use of promising practices as common practices.

3. Enhanced community college leadership role in building and sustaining high-quality programs and services supportive of regional economic growth strategies.

AACC addresses these goals through funded project work with cohorts of member colleges, in collaboration with federal, foundation, and industry partners.  Learning outcomes and promising practices are scaled to the full membership.
