Surveys & Benchmark Data

Contract Education

We periodically conduct surveys of contract education units in the state to compile data that can be used for benchmarking purposes. Information collected from the survey responses is used to inform contract education units about general business practices in contract education and how contract education units achieve high levels of performance.

National CE 2017 Benchmark Survey
Data for the National CE 2017 Benchmark Survey was collected during the spring of 2017. A total of 58 community colleges representing twenty-two (22) states participated. Each participating college responded to twenty-two (22) questions related to the following nine contract education areas:  Funding, Structure, Revenue/Sales, Service Offerings, Industry Sectors, Marketing, IT Systems, Success Factors and Challenges & Goals.

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
