AN ACT to amend the economic development law, in relation to  establish-
  ing centers of workforce achievement

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative intent. The purpose of this act is  to  advance
the creation of public/private partnerships between the state university
of  New  York's community colleges and private businesses by instituting
the designation of centers of workforce achievement; the creation  of  a
designation  of center of workforce achievement; the creation of a fund-
ing stream to support the creation and development of these  centers  of
workforce development and training. The designation as a center of work-
force  achievement  will  allow community colleges to form collaborative
partnerships  with  regional  workforce  investment  boards,  industrial
development  agencies,  and  private businesses to accurately assess the
gap between middle skill and high skills training and the jobs that  are
available  in each region.  Many community colleges are already engaging
in public/private partnerships with local businesses.  It  is  estimated
that  up  to eighty percent of community college graduates remain in the
area and as technologies and industries  evolve,  our  education  system
must  also evolve to create a workforce that is equipped with the skills
to perform these new jobs.
  S 2. The economic development law is amended by adding a  new  article
19-A to read as follows:
                               ARTICLE 19-A
                          CENTERS OF WORKFORCE
                           ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM
SECTION 415. CENTERS OF WORKFORCE ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM.
  S  415. CENTERS OF WORKFORCE ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM. THE CENTERS OF WORK-
FORCE ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM IS  HEREBY  ESTABLISHED  FOR  THE  PURPOSE  OF
FOSTERING  COLLABORATION  BETWEEN  THE  STATE  UNIVERSITY  OF NEW YORK'S
COMMUNITY COLLEGES AND THE PRIVATE BUSINESS SECTOR TO DEVELOP A  SKILLED
WORKFORCE THAT MEETS THE NEEDS OF THE LOCAL AND REGIONAL COMMUNITY.
