Washington State Board for Community & Technical Colleges
The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) is led by a Governor-appointed board and provides leadership, advocacy, and coordination for Washington’s system of 34 public community and technical colleges. Each year, nearly 400,000 students train for the workforce, prepare to transfer to a university, gain basic math and English skills, or pursue continuing education. The system tagline – “Better Jobs, Brighter Futures, a Stronger Washington” – reflects the colleges’ role in transforming lives and fueling the economy. SBCTC sets policy, allocates state operating and capital funds to the colleges, strategically plans the two-year college mission, and approves educational programs.
This project began in the Spring of 2014 and engaged almost the entire High Monkey team at various points throughout the project’s 18-month lifespan. For this project, High Monkey was asked to provide guidance during a process of evaluating and selecting a Content Management System for SBCTC as well as completing tasks that engaged almost every aspect of High Monkey’s expertise throughout the project.
The New SBCTC site was awarded with the gold medal at the 2016 National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR) District 7 Medallion awards in the overall website category.
