The Greater Reading Chamber Alliance (GRCA) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Alvernia University, which will offer GRCA members a 20% discount on tuition for all eligible graduate and adult undergraduate programs.
Accelerated bachelors, master’s and doctoral programs and certificate programs will be available to members in addition to full access as a student to university resources including state-of-the-art computer labs, library resources, volunteer opportunities, a career development team, fitness centers, athletic events and more.
“GRCA is committed to learning and advancing our workforce, and we are excited to offer our members a tuition discount to pursue professional and personal development through our partnership with Alvernia,” said Julie Larison, Senior Director of Membership Services, GRCA.
This new offering is the next step in the growing relationship between the two organizations.
“Through our Reading CollegeTowne initiative, we are committed to the economic development of the greater Reading region,” said Alvernia University President John R. Loyack. “We are grateful for the opportunity to help the GRCA expand its mission by providing opportunities for regional businesses to develop and retain high-performing employees through our flexible, relevant and in-demand academic programs and the development of new businesses through the O’Pake Institute’s student-powered business incubator.”
The program is the newest addition to GRCA’s numerous member exclusive programs. Some of which include discounts from Constant Contact, Capital Blue, YMCA Berks and BetterHelp.
