Education and industry make an unbeatable combination for progress
On behalf of our board of trustees, President Alex Johnson, faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to Cuyahoga Community College and the 2015 Evolution of Manufacturing.
Workforce and economic development form the core of our work at Tri-C. The purpose of that work is advancing manufacturing in Northeast Ohio. It is part of our culture and our community. It informs the way we work and why we take pride in what we do.
Tri-C’s Workforce and Economic Development Division (WEDD) invests in state-of-the-art facilities and skill development for future generations of manufacturing professionals, and we are committed to leading the way in meeting the talent needs of manufacturing companies in Northeast Ohio. As part of Tri-C’s commitment to manufacturing, members of our team work with highly trained faculty and industry experts to develop specialized programs that provide future manufacturing professionals with the skills they need for a promising career.
Whether additive or subtractive, Tri-C offers flexible, in-demand training that meets the needs of industry. But we can’t do it alone. We believe the best way to advance manufacturing is through strategic partnerships. Whether old friends or new ones, we are pleased so many have chosen to partner with Tri-C, and we congratulate each of the honorees on their accomplishments.
William H. Gary Sr.
executive vice president
Cuyahoga Community College Workforce and Economic Development Division (WEDD)
