College Receives Workforce Development Grant from Capital One

Stella and Charles Guttman Community College has been awarded a $50,000 Workforce Development Grant from the Capital One Foundation. The Office of Partnerships & Community Engagement (OPCE) will use the grant to develop a workforce development initiative that will become a permanent focus area for the OPCE.

In addition to receiving grant funds for workforce development planning, the selected community college grantees will participate in a 9-month cohort with the Capital One Foundation to address the question of how a community college goes about positioning itself as a leader in local economic development. During the initial 9-month planning phase, community college leaders will collectively craft a vision for future cohort work by refining this question and sharing promising practices to grow and achieve greater scale in our local communities.

The community colleges participating in the CCWD cohort include:

  • Borough of Manhattan Community College
  • Bronx Community College
  • Collin County Community College
  • Dallas County Community College District
  • Delgado Community College
  • Guttman Community College
  • Hostos Community College
  • Kingsborough Community College
  • LaGuardia Community College
  • Montgomery College
  • Northern Virginia Community College
  • Prince George’s Community College
  • Queensborough Community College
  • University of the District of Columbia Community College
