Roberts Wesleyan College adds corporate partners

Roberts Wesleyan College has signed three organizations—Catholic Charities, Mary Cariola Children’s Center and St. Ann’s Community—to its Corporate Partnership program.

“This partnership shows each organization’s commitment to education and supporting employees in achieving their full potential,” said Kimberley Wiedefeld, vice president for enrollment management in a statement. “We are excited to prepare professionals who will make contributions to our community. This is a win-win for employees and the institution.”

Qualifying employees at each of the three organizations will receive these benefits from Roberts Wesleyan:

  • A 25 percent discount for benefit eligible employees, spouses and dependents, which can be combined with corporate tuition assistance programs;
  • Accelerated, part-time and full-time classroom and online options designed to support work-life balance;
  • Experience and mentorship with faculty; and
  • Access to over 60 undergrad majors, 15 graduate programs, four bachelor’s completion programs and a Doctor of Psychology program.

“We are very pleased to become an educational partner with Roberts Wesleyan College,” said  Karen Zandi, president and CEO of Mary Cariola Children’s Center, in a statement. “The college’s commitment to work with not-for-profit agencies truly strengthens the community as a whole by providing educational opportunities for those wanting to further their education and their careers. Ultimately, the workforce becomes stronger and so does the entire region.”
