Seattle Community Colleges are one of the primary providers of workers in the health care, high-tech, software,
transportation, and other high-demand fields in the region. It is critical that we invest in new or upgraded
buildings and current instructional and laboratory equipment so that students have the opportunity to learn
on the equipment they will be using in the workplace. The Power & Promise campaign is funding a series
of industry-related initiatives. As initiatives are funded, new initiatives will be introduced.
