Community Engagement – CGCC

Community Engagement

The Office of Community Engagement and Professional Development (CEPD) provides varied educational, vocational, personal interest, and cultural opportunities. 

We strive to meet the lifelong-learning and personal-enrichment needs of area residents of all ages, by offering non-credit courses, training programs, workshops, camps, community events, and a highly acclaimed concert and lecture program, CoGreene Presents, which offers a vibrant calendar of cultural events that has featured such artists as Buddy Guy, Levon Helm, and most recently his daughter Amy Helm.

Non-credit class offerings alone feature more than two hundred titles, with courses starting each month throughout the year. At the same time, senior citizens can participate in activities offered through the Adult Learning Institute.

For more information, call 518.828.4181, extension 3342.
