Welcome To COMBASE
COMBASE, an abbreviation for COMMUNITY-BASED,
is a consortium of many leading community and technical colleges in the nation dedicated to sharing innovative
solutions to meet the challenges of our nation’s rapidly changing economy.
In 1974, when
COMBASE was established, a high school education was enough for most Americans to obtain a middle-class job.
Today, everyone recognizes the importance of education and training beyond high school, to be college and
career ready and ultimately attain a good job and a living wage. America has turned to its community colleges
to deliver what both students and employers need, with new and innovative programs that leverage partnerships
throughout the community and the nation.
For over 40 years, through its programs and publications,
COMBASE has ensured that these innovative programs can be promoted
