Several federal grants prioritized the role of community colleges in education and training in recent years, and one of the most substantial investments was the Trade Adjustment Act Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) program of the United States Department of Labor (DOL). Beginning October 2011, these $2 billion capacity-building grants funded community colleges and their workforce and employer partners to prepare individuals for family living-wage employment that would in turn, provide skilled workers for industry sectors needed to recover and grow the economy. This brief is one in a series of four briefs that tell the story of how scaling happened under the TAACCCT Round One grant. Air Washington is one of 23 Round One TAACCCT consortia highlighted in the "Scaling Change" series because this consortium has an important story to tell. The content for this story is derived from multiple sources, including publications prepared by and derived from the Air Washington Consortium, the Air Washington Strategy Brief published by TCI (Simmons, Cox, Lyons-Holstine, & Richie, 2015), and phone calls and in-person conversations with individuals from multiple community colleges that were part of the Consortium. Based on the team's research on change in the community college, seven guiding principles for scaling transformative change were identified. Three factors are mentioned in this brief as part of the important lessons learned: (1) transformative leadership; (2) policy change; and (3) communication and dissemination.
