A Stronger Washington

Washington's community and technical colleges build prosperity for all Washingtonians. The nearly 337,000 students educated at our open-door colleges every year become the employees, entrepreneurs, consumers, and taxpayers who keep our state economy vibrant — and raise the quality of life for every one of us. At a time when Washington’s future depends on higher education, "democracy’s colleges" are creating better jobs, brighter futures and a stronger Washington.
