Agriculture, Water, and Environmental Technology Initiative
Doing What MATTERS for Jobs and the Economy
The California Community Colleges and its Doing What Matters for Jobs and the Economy framework invests funding and resources in industry sectors that are key to California’s economic growth. Through sector strategies and services, the Agriculture, Water, and Environmental Technology initiative works to ensure the economic viability of California’s agriculture and natural resources industry, while maintaining our environmental integrity, especially in the area of water – our most precious resource.
- Support: We support regional and statewide sector strategies that promote the education, training, and advocacy of agricultural and environmental businesses and services.
- Drive: We drive the development and alignment of curriculum in Agriculture, Natural Resources, Water, and environmental technology programs across the state.
- Advance: We sustain and advance the development of career pathways in an effort to maintain California’s standing as the number one agriculture state in the nation.
