Erie County Community College Committee Announces Action Plan
The committee behind bringing a community college to Erie announced an action plan Wednesday.
The community college committee is advocating for a free-standing community college in Erie County.
Its action plan is a combined media and advocacy campaign to get support for a stand-alone community college.
The plan was developed by the non-profit group Empower Erie.
"We need to have a community college to have a trained workforce, so we can compete in this new global economy," said Ron DiNicola, co-founder of Empower Erie. "That's the piece that's missing from the Erie economic development menu."
Wednesday's plan was announced two months after Erie County Council voted in support of building a community college.
