Expert in Residence Deadline

Expert-In-Residence Program


Program Overview
Mission EDC launched the Expert-in-Residence program to address the growing need of creative professionals. This initiative will connect Mission residents to experts in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM).

The launch of the Expert-in-Residence program comes at a pivotal time in the city’s growth. As Mission’s workforce continues to develop at a rapid pace, this new initiative will meet the demand for resources and training in areas not usually accessible to Mission residents. Supported by this new initiative, the city of Mission continues to engage its residents in the exchange of ideas and prepare them for the labor market of the 21st century.
