by -

New community programs, many of which are free, are now available at a locally-based community college. Read on for all the details!

Gateway Community & Technical College now offers many complimentary programs and workshops to the community

Gateway Community & Technical College is expanding its reach to the community through new engagement opportunities with Gateway Local.

According to Toni Bloom Mueller, coordinator of Community Engagement, “Gateway Local advances the college’s commitment to community outreach and engagement through non-credit professional and personal development programs, gallery exhibits, and community partnerships.”

Through Gateway Local, Bloom Mueller hopes to bring more of the “community” aspect to the community college. She says that that the campuses of Gateway Community & Technical College are a hub for talent development, and giving the students, as well as the public, a chance to continue their talent and personal development with Gateway Local.

“Gateway Local was created through conversations and collaborations that identified areas of interest in our community,” she adds.
