Pathways to Broadband Access and Technology Education at Missouri’s Community Colleges
The Missouri Department of Higher Education, in collaboration with seven of the state’s community colleges, plans to expand a network of public computer centers in key areas across Missouri. Each center will be tailored to address the unique needs of the community, emphasizing community college students and economically disadvantaged residents. The centers will be “one stop” locations from which individuals can access resources to help them in the job market, utilize new and upgraded broadband workstations, and obtain training. Metropolitan Community College in Kansas City plans to use a mobile public computer center to deliver broadband access throughout the service area.
