Who We Are

The West Comprehensive Center at WestEd (WCC) provides support and assistance on key education initiatives to state education agencies in Arizona, Nevada and Utah. The WCC is part of a federally-funded network of 22 technical assistance centers made up of fifteen regional centers serving individual or clusters of states and seven content centers providing expertise and services in specific, high priority areas.

Working with the content centers, the WCC collaborates closely with SEAs in the West region to:

  • Strengthen SEA organizational capacity to implement, support, scale up and sustain statewide initiatives;
  • Build SEA leadership capacity to lead and support their LEAs and schools in improving student outcomes.

The WCC activities include convening regional and state communities of practice; providing expertise, onsite consultation and guidance; and providing current and emergent research, evidence based practices and resources.
