Richland College: It will use its grant to focus on training in the advanced manufacturing, mechatronics and electronics manufacturing industries. Its Veterans-Focused Engineering Technology Project will address demands in advanced manufacturing industries, particularly those requiring trained workers in electronics technology/mechatronics. The college will conduct outreach to, train and support gainful employment for, discharged armed forces veterans enrolled in the Pentagon’s Transitions to Veterans Program and others. The college received additional grant funding to  include national partners, such as industry associations, to help design and implement job training based on industry-recognized credentials.

Teaching, Learning & Community Building
Introduction
For over 40 years, Richland College has focused on teaching, learning and community building. In recognition of these efforts, the White House and the Dept. of Commerce named Richland a 2005 recipient of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the only community college to have received this award. Richland helps students build their future through courses that can be applied to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree, one- or two-year certificates in a number of career fields, and training in the latest technology for students who want to advance in their current careers. The student body of approximately 20,000 college credit students and about 5,000 continuing education students at Richland is internationally and ethnically diverse, speaking more than 79 first languages. Richland College also offers students living in contiguous counties the opportunity to enroll in Richland Collegiate High School (RCHS), one of the first junior-senior dual credit charter high schools administered by a community college. The TEA Exemplary-rated RCHS has capacity for up to 900 students who may simultaneously earn a high school diploma and an associate degree.
