What is Community Education?

The Community and Economic Development department partners with the community to contribute to the economic vitality of the region, provides workforce training to support local employers' needs, and provides lifelong learning opportunities within the District. Community & Economic Development courses are not-for-credit classes offered in addition to the College’s academic program. The program is a self-supporting entity of College of the Redwoods.
