The San Francisco Office of Economic & Workforce Development (OEWD) has awarded the following grants to CCSF: CityBuild Academy, CityBuild Pro, and TechSF Occupational Skills Training. The Office of Workforce and Economic Development played a key role in developing these proposals with the support of the Office of Grants and Resource Development and in collaboration with the Office of Contract Education and Extension Programs. Good job everyone!
Congratulations to the Admissions & Registration and Outreach teams! During FRISCO week, 387 students successfully enrolled in Fall 2021 with an average unit load of 13.39 units per student.
