Continuing Education & Workforce Skill Development

Grand County Higher Education (GCHE) was formed out of the need to provide residents a champion to reduce barriers to access to continuing education and workforce training opportunities that do not presently exist in Grand County.

Grand Foundation

It is through the vision, commitment and action of the Grand Foundation Board of Directors and staff that Grand County Higher Education is in place assisting the residents, businesses and workforce. The Grand Foundation turned the need for access to higher education into reality in 2015 through the creation of a subsidiary Grand County Higher Education Board specifically to lead the hiring of a Director and secure funding sources. Grand County Higher Education was a venture within the Grand Foundation until August 2017 when independent nonprofit status was achieved by Grand County Higher Education.
