Community Outreach and Continuing Education
The mission of GBC Continuing Education is to provide lifelong learning opportunities for residents in GBC communities through
diverse educational courses. These courses are often only a few
sessions in length and reflect a variety of topics that appeal to
different groups. For example, adults enjoy our Fundamentals for
Computer User courses. High School students enroll in Driver’s
Education, and younger students participate in Kids College
each summer. Continuing Education develops customized
workforce development courses for businesses that want to train
their employees in areas such as Effective Business Writing,
Customer Service, and Microsoft Office Computer Applications.
Great Basin College hosts many social and cultural events each
year that are often organized through the Continuing Education
office and the GBC Arts and Cultural Enrichment committee.
Past events include films, speakers, and book signings.
Continuing Education also coordinates the Educational Travel
program which offers travel opportunities in the U.S. and abroad.
