Ohio Dominican University has partnered with the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce (GCACC) to offer its members and employees an opportunity to complete a wide range of Business-related undergraduate or graduate degrees as well as certificate programs at a discounted rate.

ODU’s Educational Partnership Program gives corporations, government agencies and nonprofit organizations the ability to provide employees with continuing education options at the undergraduate and graduate level to help their organization foster innovation, identify and keep top talent, and provide employees with the opportunity to enhance their professional credentials.

Benefits of becoming an Educational Partnership Program member include:

  • Waived application fee to ODU;
  • Ability to take as many as three classes free of charge (up to 25% savings);
  • Flexible start dates;
  • And option to attend class on ODU’s campus during the evening, online, or possibly on-site at the employer’s location.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to work closely with the business community in southwest Columbus, and to provide educational opportunities to the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce’s many dedicated members,” said ODU President Robert Gervasi, Ph.D. “The number of businesses that operate in and around Grove City has increased dramatically in recent years. We look forward to serving as a resource to these businesses so they may thrive in Central Ohio’s competitive and evolving business climate for years to come.”

“I am very excited to connect a partnership between the GCACC and ODU,” said Wayne Coakley, president of the GCACC. “We hear from our members about workforce gaps they are experiencing, and this partnership program will be well received throughout our members and community.”

“We anticipate this relationship will provide great value and benefit to our members and their employees, and will help to fulfill our commitment to workforce development, which in turn, will strengthen our community,” said Shawn Conrad, executive director of the GCACC.
