Everett Community College logo

Everett Community College is an Achieving the Dream Leader College of Distinction, recognized for improving English and math completion, increasing student retention and closing equity gaps.

EvCC’s commitment to lead with racial equity is consistent with the vision of the State Board for Community and Technical College's vision statement. The college's new strategic plan, Charting a Path Forward to Equity: 2022-2027, formally recognizes equity as the heart of its work.

From training in area hospitals to learning how to protect physical infrastructure from cyber attacks, EvCC students get real-world education to prepare them to transfer to a four-year school or go to work.

Points of Interest

Job creation

Everett Community College (EvCC) is providing skilled workers to the increasing number of advanced manufacturing firms in the region. EvCC’s Advanced Manufacturing Training and Education Center (AMTEC) students are getting jobs as machinists, composite technicians, welders, fabricators and engineering technicians. Strong partnerships with local employers strengthen the EvCC curriculum and the transition from school to work.


EvCC launched its Weekend College program in fall 2021 to better serve student parents and other students who need a more flexible course schedule. In addition to the classes offered, students will have access to key college services. In fall 2021, EvCC became the first community college in the nation to provide training for students who are learning how to protect physical infrastructure from cyber attacks using real industrial components and networks. EvCC Information Technology students are using the college’s new industrial cybersecurity training system. The heart of this system is a 15-foot interactive wall that replicates a small manufacturing company’s industrial components, hardware, software and networks.

New Learning Resource Center 

EvCC broke ground on its new Cascade Learning Resource Center in September 2021. The 65,000-square-foot building opens in 2023 and will be home to the John N. Terry Library/Media Center, Tutoring Center, Writing Center, eLearning, Instructional Media Services, the Russell Day Gallery and the Center for Transformative Teaching. The building features space designed for student parents, including a children’s library and study spaces for parents and children.
