Workforce and Economic Development

St. Lawrence College partners with regional organizations to support workforce and economic development.

Our goal is to support the growth of our local economies and create opportunities for our students and alumni. We use a variety of tools to conduct our work such as partnering on grants and projects, designing and delivering custom training, and contracting the use of College resources and services. We work with partners to leverage external funding opportunities through various governmental and non-government sources.
