Centers are hosted on campuses around the state. Hosting a Center of Excellence on a campus creates some unique challenges due to the industry’s focus of the Center’s work and the statewide leadership model. While Centers were initially designated as a result of the expertise and outstanding programs of an individual college, their roles have evolved to one representing the work of the entire community and technical college system as it pertains to a specific industry driving the state’s economy. As such, they are no longer “owned” by a particular campus, but rather, they are “owned” by the entire CTC system.
