In addition to the learning opportunities and resources created and maintained by the Center for Teaching Excellence, there are several other opportunities for professional development at GRCC. More information on each of these is available by clicking on the links to the right. These opportunities include:

  • Faculty Externships: 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.
