Field Guide 2021

Economic Recovery for Washington

To get a good job these days, people need education past high school. The COVID-19 pandemic has made a certificate or degree even more valuable, not less.

At Washington's 34 community and technical colleges, people from all ages and backgrounds can learn skills to survive this economic crisis and thrive on the other side, with better jobs than they had before. New high school graduates, laid-off workers, seasoned employees, future university students — all count on community and technical colleges to reinvent themselves. As the colleges that serve Washingtonians hardest hit by this crisis, we are key to creating a stronger and more inclusive economy post-COVID. 

The 2021 Field Guide features exceptional work underway at our local community and technical colleges on behalf of the 273,000  we serve each year. Take a look to learn more about the life-changing work happening every day across Washington.
