Opportunity Center (OCE&E)

Who We Are

The Opportunity Center for Employment and Education (OCE&E), located on the North campus, provides integrated educational, vocational, employment and supportive services through a partnership of multiple community-based agencies and community colleges. These organizations are working together to provide seamless employment and educational services and public assistance benefits to the unemployed, the underemployed, students and their families. 

Housing approximately 120 professionals, the OCE&E project aims to coordinate services to meet current and future workforce needs and shape the delivery of those services to be maximally effective in helping customers achieve self-sufficiency through employment and life-long learning.
