College of the Canyons is one of five community colleges from across the nation partnering in a $7.5 million National Science Foundation grant that was awarded to Madison Area Technical College.

Over the next five years, the consortium of participating colleges will form the CREATE National Energy Center, which will provide resources to build a skilled technical workforce, improve gender equity in the energy field, expand partnerships between education and industry, and contribute to the transformation of global energy industries.

Funded through NSF’s Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program, the CREATE National Energy Center will be the only one of its kind in the country.

“We are honored to be the only California community college that is taking part in this groundbreaking energy initiative,” said College of the Canyons Chancellor Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook. “We look forward to contributing to the CREATE National Energy Center’s mission of preparing students to enter the rapidly evolving global energy workforce.”
