Quality Enhancement Plan - Engagement Drives GPC Education

In an effort to maintain a ready supply of service learning placement opportunities for GPC students, the QEP Office maintains relationships with select umbrella service organizations in the counties, towns, and cities in which GPC has campuses. The QEP Office strives to create deep, long-lasting relationships rather than shallow, short-lived ones. In addition to the relationships developed by the QEP Office, faculty members are encouraged to develop relationships with agencies at which they wish their students to serve.

Community partnerships develop continuously and are added as needed. The following list is a sampling of community-based organizations, governmental agencies, or schools with which GPC has developed a service learning / civic engagement partnership.

Students are also encouraged to identify service learning placement sites by visiting any of the following websites, all of which provide search capabilities based on type of service opportunitiy and zip code.
