The City University of New York’s Community Colleges Consortium (CUNYCCC)

The Strengthening Community Colleges Training Grant (referred to as Strengthening Community Colleges or SCC) awarded by the U.S Department of Labor (DOL) aims to build the capacity of community colleges to collaborate with employers and the public workforce development system to meet local and regional labor market demand for a skilled workforce. The grant also builds the capacity of community colleges to address challenges associated with the COVID-19 health crisis, such as expanding online and technology-enabled learning and migrating services to a virtual environment.

Overview of Strengthening Community College Grant:

Who We Are:

The City University of New York’s Community Colleges Consortium (CUNYCCC), consists of Queensborough Community College (QCC) as the lead applicant, representing a consortium of Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs), with the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC), Bronx Community College (BCC), Hostos Community College (HCC), Kingsborough Community College (KBCC) and LaGuardia Community College (LAGCC), the Central Office of Continuing Education and Workforce Partnerships at the City University of New York as the IHE Coordinating Entity, the New York City Workforce Development Board (NYC WDB) and public and private sector partners and community-based organizations.

 

What We Do:

The CUNYCCC will create and implement systemic change throughout the collective CUNY Continuing Education and Workforce Development (CEWD) programs to create one, unified Workforce Development Ecosystem, designed to:

  • Increase the capacity and responsiveness of community colleges to address the skill development needs of employers and dislocated and unemployed workers, incumbent workers, and new entrants to the workforce.
  • Offer a spectrum of workers and other individuals accelerated career pathways that enable them to gain skills and transition from unemployment to (re)employment quickly.
  • Address the new challenges associated with the COVID-19 health crisis that necessitate social distancing practices to expand online and technology-enabled learning and migrate services to a virtual environment.

The CUNYCCC will focus on three in-demand Industry Sectors in NYC: Technology, Health Care and Education. The US DOL SCC Grant will build the capacity of CUNY community colleges to collaborate with employers and the public workforce development system to meet local and regional labor market demand for a skilled workforce.
