Lebanon Valley College Partners with Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC
HARRISBURG (March 23, 2015) Lebanon Valley College has announced that it will partner with the Harrisburg Regional Chamber & the Capital Region Economic Development Corporation (CREDC) to offer an exclusive educational benefit to its estimated 1,200 member businesses and almost 100,000 employees in the region. The partnership enables members the opportunity to take advantage of a tuition discount on all of Lebanon Valley College’s post-bachelor’s certificate programs, master of business administration program, or Professional Development Pathways Non-Credit Courses offered through its Office of Graduate & Professional Studies.
Chamber & CREDC members will receive a 10% discount on the standard tuition charged for these programs. Members will be able to take courses, depending on the program, at one of LVC’s current onsite locations in Harrisburg (Dixon University Center), Lancaster IU13, the main campus in Annville, or online.
Students interested in enrolling in one or more of the programs need to complete and submit a Lebanon Valley College admission application, verification of Chamber & CREDC membership in good standing, and any additional materials that LVC deems appropriate as required for admission to its Graduate & Professional Studies Department.
“Since its inception, the Chamber & CREDC has been committed to workforce development and education through our Business & Education Partnership Committee, educational seminars, and other programs,” stated Patricia Bucek, vice president of chamber operations for the Chamber & CREDC. “The tuition discount program is one of the first in our area and provides access to education in a variety of areas that are essential to the region’s new economy.
“The Chamber & CREDC have received very positive feedback from its members about the new program,” added Bucek. “We suspect it won’t be long before participants begin enrolling in this initial program at LVC.”
“I am thrilled that this collaborative partnership will provide educational opportunities, ranging from helping to bridge the skills gap to customized learning,” said Beth Romanski, LVC director of professional studies. “The flexibility—Chamber & CREDC members can take certain classes online, in our new business and healthcare certificate programs in the Dixon University Center in Harrisburg, in Lancaster, or on our main campus in Annville—will help business owners and managers quickly gain an excellent return on their investment.”
