GRCC GIS program is committed to high quality education and training

Our training not only introduces the software, but
familiarizes students with the principles and concepts behind the software.
Our courses enhance the student's education with hands-on
experience giving them a direct opportunity to implement their knowledge in
their discipline of interest.
GIS Project Planning, GIS Project, GIS Special Topics and Independent Study courses are offered as well and are designed to accommodate any area of student's interest
Working in the community is a
significant part of our GIS program. We work closely with the GIS
community to give students an opportunity to experience a real world GIS
setting through internships.
I always strive to facilitate the
communication and connection between my students and the GIS professional
community. The support of many local GIS industries in providing internships
for our students has been invaluable. Working with community GIS centers
provides mutual and reciprocal benefits to our program and the community.
In the past, we have collaborated with cities, counties, and private sectors to
implement some of their projects.
I am very proud of our GIS Alliance club,
which is run by students with excitement and eagerness to reach out to work closely
within the GIS profession. Green River will continue to enhance the GIS
program so that it provides the society with skilled GIS professionals
ready to serve our community.
