About the COE

The Centers of Excellence for Labor Market Research (COE) are the number one source of regional labor market information (LMI) for the California Community Colleges. The San Diego-Imperial COE’s primary function is to produce LMI for the Regional Program Recommendation Process: When the San Diego and Imperial Counties Community Colleges develop a new program, they start with a needs assessment, which includes a labor market demand and supply analysis from the San Diego-Imperial COE. Labor market briefs produced for the Regional Program Recommendation Process can be found here.

Other functions of the San Diego-Imperial COE include:
