As America’s economy transforms itself into a green economy, community colleges – with their ability to turn on a dime to meet changing market conditions – will become increasingly important. America will need educated technicians whose skills can cross industry lines; those are community college graduates. We will need technicians who are able to learn new skills as technologies evolve; these are community college graduates. With the support of their local business partners, as well as state and federal governments, America’s community colleges will meet the demands of the green economy.
