We are not only committed to our students, but also to the communities we serve. We do this through:
- Service and applied learning opportunities
- Our Business Alliance program
- Government and community relations
- Program advisory committees
- The Globe Education Network
Service and applied learning opportunities
We define this concept as “learning by doing through an act of giving,” and it’s a core component of the education all of our students receive. It’s our way of helping you become responsible, caring community members through civic responsibility, community service, and integrated instruction and reflection.
Participants have the opportunity to apply course concepts in hands-on, real-world situations; network with businesses, nonprofit and professional organizations, and local governments; and take pride in giving back to your community.
Projects facilitated through our service-learning center may include:
- Providing business owners with marketing plans, market research and industry insights
- Assisting nonprofit organizations with clothing drives, fundraisers and public space restoration
- Working with children and the elderly
- Partnering with local or state agencies on advocacy campaigns, public policy recommendations and communication programs
If you know of an organization we could help support, reach out to a campus near you and ask for the campus director.
Our Business Alliance program aims to partner with local employers to promote a vision for improving the workforce, supporting the economy and maintaining global competitiveness.
Employers who join this program have access to:
- Business Alliance Scholarships for qualified employees
- Employee development training
- Campus events
- Career services support
Employees of our Business Alliance partners who pursue degrees with us are also eligible for 10% off the cost of tuition, depending on credit load. Eligible students must show proof of employment at the time of enrollment and each academic year thereafter.
To join the Business Alliance program, your company must have a minimum of 25 employees and agree to:
- Notify employees of educational opportunities at our school

To learn more or apply for the program, please contact the campus nearest you and request to speak with the director of admissions.
