What We Do

WCC InfographicThe Work Colleges Consortium (WCC) supports member schools with federal compliance (a) conducts research across the institutions to help assess student work-learning and service outcomes; (b) shares best practices; and (c) supports ongoing activities among the colleges in the areas of work-learning-service.

The Consortium believes that the Work College model provides an unprecedented educational experience for students that should be emulated and we make every effort to extend our expertise to others. The majority of Work College students are first generation college participants. Students graduate with a valued degree, real work experience, and a strong sense of how their work and service contribute to their communities. They leave college with heightened self-awareness and an understanding of their place in the world and the important contributions they can make as individuals. Importantly, Work College students graduate from college with reduced, little, or no debt.
