Welcome to PCEC Outreach!
Welcome to Seymour & Esther Padnos College of Engineering and Computing (PCEC) Outreach!
We are one of the two branches of the PCEC Student Services Center.
As a comprehensive university, GVSU takes our broad mission of Educating students to shape their lives, their professions and their societies very seriously. Thus faculty are supported in, and rewarded for their activities in the areas of teaching, scholarship and service. While teaching will always be our primary mission, faculty must be active in all three areas and are truly supported in service activities as well as scholarship. Many faculty members focus their efforts in the area of service and the scholarship of service. Supporting K-12 STEM education in west Michigan has become a major element of our service to the community.
PCEC outreach programs are designed to create positive, hands on learning-environments for students. Our hope is that students involved in these activities will develop the interest to pursue education and careers in engineering and science.
Outreach at PCEC is a shared interest among students, faculty, staff, educators and local industry.
