Faculty Voices Project - League for Innovation in the Community College

League for Innovation in the Community College

The League's Faculty Voices Project engaged community college faculty, both full- and part-time, in the national conversation about student success and completion to (a) identify issues, challenges, and concerns faculty have about the national focus on student completion; and (b) identify ways faculty–individually and in college-wide efforts–support student success, retention, and completion. The four-year project (2014-2017) was funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Innovation in Apprenticeship Newsletter

California Community Colleges Makerspaces
California Community Colleges makerspaces prepare students for careers and contribute to regional economies. In 2016, the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office, Workforce and Economic Development Division funded the $17 million CCC Maker Initiative for three years under the Doing What Matters for Jobs and the Economy  framework. We believe that creating a college maker culture will enable students to explore, create and connect in new creative ways and this will more effectively prepare them for meaningful careers. We encourage CTE faculty members to review the details of the CCC Maker Initiative and determine if an opportunity for collaboration exists.
