We support higher education institutions recruit great students by helping working adults return to school and finish their degree or certificate. Our initiative brings together higher education institutions and local businesses to support adult learners, making the transition from working adult to your student as seamless as possible.

We help businesses become employers of choice by supporting their employees’ return to school. Companies that invest in the education of their employees are investing in their businesses. They have access to a more skilled workforce, happier employees, and new business opportunities. Investing in the education of working adults improves the economy, prepares for the workforce needs of the future, and impacts our community for generations to come. An investment in education is an investment in a better future—for everyone. Our employers know that:
- Educating employees adds to the success of their business.
- Investing in employees, means vested employees.
- Education improves the economy, and that’s good for business.
