The Detroit Drives Degrees Community College Collaborative (D3C3) is a cross-sector collaborative that elevates the role of community colleges in working towards regional talent pipeline transformation in Southeast Michigan. Three clusters of work propel this initiative towards our goals: 1) student success, 2) K-12 alignment, and 3) employer-led sector pathways.
In partnership with critical cross-sector stakeholders across all three clusters, community colleges are being funded to 1) implement college-level, systemic-level strategies aligned with D3C3 goals and 2) participate in the D3C3 learning community and collaborative regional strategy development and implementation.
Significant investment is being made to our community colleges and the Southeast Michigan community to engage in this transformational work. We are grateful to our partners, the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation and Ballmer Group, for supporting this work.
