Welcome to the Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development
The mission of the Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development is to
contribute leadership and resources to increase the skills, knowledge and career
opportunities of Oregonians.
The agency, with local education and workforce partners, manages resources from the state
of Oregon supporting Oregon's community colleges; federal resources supporting one-stop
career centers, adult basic skills and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs; and
lottery funds supporting the Oregon Youth Conservation Corps.
Oregon has 17 independent community colleges and seven LWIAs. A link to each of these
organizations is available on this Web site. We hope you find the Web site helpful and
can access the services you are seeking. Please contact our webmaster Terry Bouie
