New Partnership Brings Pfeiffer’s Programs to Monarch Employees
Pfeiffer University and Monarch recently announced an agreement that provides Monarch employees access to Pfeiffer’s degree completion and graduate programs at a reduced tuition rate. The contract was signed at Monarch’s corporate office by its Chief Executive Officer Dr. Peggy S. Terhune, and Dr. Colleen Perry Keith, Pfeiffer president.
The cooperative agreement launches Pfeiffer’s Partnership Program, which offers specialized academic programs and financial incentives to businesses and organizations with a shared understanding of furthering the educational attainment of current employees. With similar agreements pending, Pfeiffer’s programs will be widely accessible and affordable throughout the region for employees of partner organizations wishing to continue their educations.
“The goal of Pfeiffer’s Partnership Program is to develop a common interest in the educational development of workforces so they are able to remain competitive within a global environment,” said Dr. Keith. “Pfeiffer is very pleased to partner with Monarch as they maximize the talents of their extraordinary staff.”
All employees, regardless of their geographic location, are eligible to participate in the program as Pfeiffer offers classes in a number of delivery formats, including online.
“Monarch is elated to partner with Pfeiffer University to offer targeted, high-caliber degree programs to our staff statewide,” said Dr. Terhune. “We have always been a proponent of professional development and have proactively sought to identify and implement innovative training and educational opportunities for Monarch employees. Through our agreement with Pfeiffer, we can greatly expand the accessibility of higher education to current staff to help them in their professional pursuits, which not only benefits the employees who choose to pursue this opportunity—and our organization—but ultimately benefits the people we support.”
