Employers join Roberts Wesleyan’s discounted tuition plan

More than 20 companies and agencies have joined Roberts Wesleyan College’s Corporate Partnership program, gaining discounted tuition for their employees.

The program was launched earlier this year as a way to reach a new audience of students. Employers are able to offer the program as a new benefit to employees without adding to their costs. Participants – employees of the workplaces in the program as well as their spouses and dependents – are eligible for a 25 percent discount on tuition. Some employers may also provide additional rebates for work-related coursework their employees complete.

“As a business owner, I look to establish new partnerships that will be enduring ones, and this opportunity with Roberts Wesleyan aligns perfectly,” said Dwight “Kip” Palmer, president of Palmer Food Services, in a prepared statement. “I believe not only the mission of the college, but also the benefits of higher education for career advancement.  This educational opportunity can enable our associates to advance their careers through academic achievement and strategic vision.”

Beside’s Palmer Food Services, the first employers to join the program include:
