Pierce College

Pierce College's Center for Excellence in Homeland Security is a coalition of all 34 Washington State Community and Technical Colleges plus public agencies, private sector organization and communities. The Center facilitates and coordinate homeland security initiatives and provides access or delivers education and training to prepare a skilled workforce to maintain our national security and serves as a liaison with business and industry to the college's faculty and administration. The Center works directly with the State Community and Technical College Safety, Security and Emergency Management Professionals (SSEMP) to apply state and national standards and practices across all the coalition colleges in the state to enhance the safety and security of the campus communities through advocacy, collaboration and partnerships which includes training and professional development. Through the Center's economic development initiatives, organizations and business receive technical assistance, expertise, information and research on current regional, state and national security initiatives.
