Thomas Edison State University and the African American Chamber of Commerce of New Jersey have announced a partnership to allow chamber employees, members and employees of member corporations to earn degrees at the adult higher education university.
The newly signed partnership allows the approximately 250 members of the chamber to enroll in TESU’s more than 100 undergraduate and graduate degree programs with a five percent tuition reduction.
The partnership is part of a statewide initiative for TESU to connect with chambers to better serve the business community as an education provider for employees seeking assistance with degree completion, advanced degree obtainment and certifications for career advancement.
“We are pleased to partner with the AACCNJ to provide these educational opportunities that are valued by the business community,” said Dennis Devery, vice president of enrollment management for the university, in a prepared statement. “Reduced cost to improve access to accredited programs for adults helps fulfill the university’s mission as well as the mission of the chamber to further the success of its members throughout the community.”
