Faculty and Staff Externship Program

The Faculty/Staff Externship program is a professional development opportunity designed to support faculty and staff connections to regional business and social sector theory and practice.  It is the goal of an externship to obtain a first-hand view of the occupational options, labor market needs, skill requirements, and standards that regional employers embrace through direct work experiences.  The intent is to validate or improve practices at GRCC.
