WCC: Federal Grant

A report from Washtenaw Community College staff describes the Oct. 1 visit to WCC by Jay Williams, executive director of the U.S. Dept. of Labor Office of Recovery for Auto Communities and Workers. His visit highlighted a recent $2.9 million federal grant to WCC, enabling it to develop new courses for the IT industry. The report quotes WCC president Rose Bellanca: “During our strategic planning process we asked employers to tell us what kind of training they needed so that we could design it. Up to this point, we have only been able to plan for it. This grant allows us to make it happen.” [Source]
