The Graduate Career Consortium membership comprises seven regions, each represented by a Regional Director in order to facilitate local member engagement. Current and potential members should contact their Regional Directors with any questions or to get involved in GCC.
Regional Directors are a “go to” person for current and potential members, serve as liaison to the regional meeting host, and they develop and communicate resources and opportunities for members within their region.
Our regions include: Midwest (WI, MI, IL, IN, OH, ND, SD, NE, KS, IA, MO, MN)
