Washington State Centers of Excellence

Convening education and industry to develop strategies for a stronger workforce.

Centers are flagship institutions that build and sustain Washington’s competitive advantage through statewide leadership. Each Center focuses on a targeted industry that drives the state’s economy and is built upon a reputation for fast, flexible, quality education and training programs. A targeted industry is identified as one that is strategic to the economic growth of a region or state.

Centers are guided by industry representatives to lead collaborative and coordinated statewide education and training efforts to build a competitive workforce in a global economy. The Centers convene, problem solve and disseminate - as well as:

  • Maintain an institutional reputation for innovation and responsive education and training delivery to their targeted industry.
  • Act as a broker of information and resources related to their targeted industry for industry representatives, community-based organizations, economic development organizations, community and technical colleges, secondary education institutions, and four-year colleges and universities.
  • Translate industry research into best practices.
  • Provide system coordination, coaching, and mentoring to assist in building seamless educational and work-related systems.
  • Build a competitive workforce for driver industries in Washington state.
