The Coalition is a network of higher education resources that advocates, advises and promotes the use of advanced technology applications that enhance economic and workforce development programs and services. The NCATC is also an affiliate of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC).

“I am honored to be selected to the board and thrilled to contribute to the NCATC’s mission,” Korschinowski said. “My role at CPTC has provided valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities faced by educational institutions striving to integrate cutting-edge technologies into their curricula. I look forward to leveraging my experience to provide meaningful contributions to the Coalition’s initiatives.”

Building awareness, fostering growth

The NCATC has more than 160 members from community and technical colleges, universities, CTC high schools, adult education organizations and the corporate community.

In addition to increasing national awareness of advanced tech centers and their positive impact on America’s competitive ability and economic growth, the Coalition’s core goals are to:

  • Develop and facilitate the exchange of workforce development programs.
  • Provide a forum for new and emerging technologies to ensure members are on the leading edge of technology applications.
  • Offer a conduit for member centers to network with one another to advance workforce and economic development in their communities.

“Clover Park Technical College has always prioritized collaboration and advancement in the field of technology education, and Claire has been instrumental in driving these values forward,” CPTC Vice President of Instruction Dr. Tom Broxson said. “Her insight, dedication and commitment to fostering innovative learning environments and promoting the integration of cutting-edge technologies in education will undoubtedly contribute to the Coalition’s growth and success.”
