USU Eastern's Workforce Education Division provides opportunities for open-entry, open-exit, competency-based education for high school and adult students. The division working in close cooperation with business and industry, local school districts and the local agencies, provides a broad range of specialized long-term and short-term certificate training, as well as customized training and small business development assistance.

Students are assisted in acquiring the basic skills necessary to succeed in these technical training programs. Workforce Education prepares students to enter, re-enter, upgrade, or advance in the workplace, which contributes to economic development, and improves the quality of life for local citizens.

Workforce Education plays a vital role in USU Eastern’s mission as a community college. The division provides the local communities with a nimble and responsive resource for educational needs, while providing a means for college departments to better connect with the training needs of the local communities.
