During the spring 2016 term, COD faculty members from the Accounting, Anesthesia Technology, Auto Service Technology, Human Services and Interior Design programs gained valuable professional and educational experiences through the Perkins Faculty Externship, a pilot program funded through a Perkins Grant proposal. Participating faculty members received stipends for spending time in professional settings related to the disciplines in which they instruct. Geared toward the goal of honing their skills and gaining knowledge of current trends, the participants shadowed professionals, served as volunteers and provided pro bono services.
