Call for New MPICT Regional Partner!

The Mid-Pacific ICT Center is governed by its Regional Leadership Council (RLC), consisting of (City College of San Francisco) Center staff and (Co-) Principal Investigators - and its Regional Partners.

MPICT had 4 original Regional Partners: Cabrillo College, Santa Rosa Junior College, Ohlone College and Foothill College, which together with CCSF encompass the San Francisco Bay Area.

Last year, MPICT added as a Regional Partner Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, NV, which brought relationships and collaborations with all Nevada community colleges through its role in the Nevada IT Education (NVITE) project.

This year, MPICT would like to add a new Regional Partner, representing either Hawaii or Oregon – or a Regional Partner with a very high quality ICT education practice that we could work together to scale out to others in the MPICT region.

Regional Partners are compensated to participate in Center governance through the MPICT Regional Leadership Council (RLC). Additionally, Regional Partners are invited to co-lead Center efforts to positively impact ICT education in northern California, northern Nevada, southern Oregon, Hawaii and the Pacific Territories. The Center funds additional work as projects.

We would prefer someone at a community college who already has serious momentum in a quality ICT education practice, which could be scaled through the Center to quickly make an impact throughout the region. We are also interested in people who would help us make significant progress in the Center’s currently stated goals:
  • Develop partnerships among higher education institutions to increase and improve the region’s ICT education capacity.
  • Deepen and expand collaboration with industry to create an ICT workforce that fully meets the region’s economic needs.
  • Identify, implement and disseminate ICT education best practices in the region, working towards a standardization of ICT competencies, skills and education approaches.
  • Develop fully articulated ICT education pathways and work to implement them throughout the region.
  • Expand, diversify and improve the region’s ICT workforce.
  • Enhance linkages to global ICT educators and employers.
If you are a community college educator at an ICT related program in the MPICT region interested in learning more about this opportunity, or if you would like to recommend someone for this opportunity, please email us at
