• Credit Acceleration and Support for Employment (CASE)

    What is CASE? Credit Acceleration and Support for Employment (CASE) is a statewide collaboration involving all 17 Oregon community colleges, the Oregon Employment Department (OED), Oregon Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD), Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), employers and community partners united by core beliefs that postsecondary credentials are the gateway to living-wage jobs and the foundation of Oregon’s future economic success.

    CASE has a three “C” strategy that will:

    • Expand and enhance Career Pathways as a vehicle to increase certificate attainment and accelerate time to completion.
    • Use Career Coaches to reduce barriers so that students enroll, persist, complete a credential and secure employment in an in-demand occupation.
    • Launch development of a portable approach to gaining Credit for Prior Learning for students and workers across the state.

    The CASE collaboration is an $18 million Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program funded by the US Department of Labor.
