Project Firstline: Infection Control in Community College Curriculum

Comprehensive Infection Control Education and Practice for Nursing and Allied Health Students

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is partnering with the American Hospital Association and the League for Innovation in the Community College to launch a new initiative to integrate enhanced infection control content into community college classrooms, with the goal of helping healthcare workers start their careers with the infection control knowledge and realities of practice they need to keep themselves and their patients safe. This partnership is a part of Project Firstline, CDC’s innovative infection control training collaborative, and is designed to further integrate essential infection control training and practice into community colleges’ nursing and allied health curricula.

Community Colleges and Communities: Collective Workforce Development and Wraparound Services

The League for Innovation in the Community College (League), with support from the Garcia Family Foundation, is leading a three-year collaborative project designed to support low-income, first-generation community college students in completing credentials and entering the workforce by focusing on wraparound services with community partnerships. Based on the knowledge that educational attainment leads to thriving communities and basic needs challenges impact academic outcomes, the League’s project is modeling a collective impact, community-minded approach where students with basic needs gaps are connected to community resources and more efficient workforce development support services.
