The Opportunity
For community colleges to become essential catalysts to California’s economic recovery and jobs creation at the local, regional and state levels.

The Strategy
Doing What MATTERS for jobs and the economy is a four-pronged framework to respond to the call of our nation, state, and regions to close the skills gap. The four prongs are:

•  Give Priority for jobs and the economy

•  Make Room for jobs and the economy

•  Promote Student Success

•  Innovate for jobs and the economy
