University partnerships expanding

Corporate, Education and Church Partnerships provide educational discounts; enhance workforce/community needs

Bluffton University continues to grow its network of Corporate Partnerships in northwest Ohio. The university has entered into three-year Corporate Partner agreements with four new Corporate Partners since January. 

New Corporate Partners include:
• Mennonite Memorial Home
• Mercy Health
• SumiRiko
• Superior Credit Union

In total, 15 Corporate Partners and nine Education Partners have signed on since the spring 2020 launch.

Bluffton recently expanded its partnership program to include churches in northwest Ohio.

Emmanuel United Church of Christ is Bluffton University’s first Church Partner. 

“We are excited to grow and expand our connections in northwest Ohio to now include Church Partners,” said Dr. Jane Wood, president of Bluffton University.

“These partnerships enhance the pipeline of talent in Northwest Ohio while providing new opportunities for working adults and their families who are established in the region, committed to advancing their careers, and dedicated to improving their communities.”

Bluffton’s Corporate Partner and Education Partner programs provide benefit-eligible employees and their immediate families a 20 percent tuition discount on Bluffton University’s undergraduate, degree-completion and master’s degree programs.

The discount is applied to both online and on-campus degree programs. The Church Partners program provides the same discounts to members of partner churches.
