Leading Change

The Career Education division proactively focuses on connecting CCSF’s educated student body with the needs of the regional economy. We do this by providing college and career opportunities that deepen the knowledge and skills of our students, aligning students aspirations to meaningful careers. Our goal is to increase college completion and attainment of individual goals, empower students to enter family-sustaining career paths, and support ongoing education to stay current in their fields. 

We work closely with external stakeholders to integrate informed, continuous improvement on program design and student services. We measure our outcomes in terms of value-added contributions to the individual students we serve and to connecting local people to the needs of the local economy. We pursue a variety of grants and external funding to provide innovative and leading edge programs and services to our students and our partners.  To contribute to the critical work we do as an industry advisor, learn more about participating with CCSF.
