Group Study Exchange

The Group Study Exchange ( GSE ) program has been replaced by a Vocational Team Exchange.

Since our state has had a long record of GSE participation the record of past years will remain available on our website.

Group Study Exchange (GSE) is a cultural and vocational program – paired Rotary Districts send and receive 4 non-Rotarian professionals and one Rotarian Leader for 4-5 weeks to develop professional and leadership skills of the team.
