Our Community Engagement and Education programs formally began with the debut of the Schools ‘n Stage Matinee Series in 2016, and the introduction of the Beyond the Classroom lecture series the same year that connects Ocean County College students and the community together to discuss  topics relevant to our world today.

Informally, the Grunin Center has partnered with The Ocean County Cultural & Heritage Commission to bring culturally diverse and educationally based programs for students in Ocean County for many years.

Below you will find several of the programs we invite the community to participate in for enrichment through workshops, lectures, educational programs, and discussions.
