IU and Devereux Sign Partnership
Immaculata University is pleased to announce it has entered into a partnership with Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health to offer Devereux employees a significant discount on undergraduate and graduate tuition.
Effective immediately, Devereux employees will receive a 20 percent discount on the full standard tuition for undergraduate courses, available through the College of LifeLong Learning. Courses are offered in various delivery formats such as online, hybrid and classroom-based. All graduate-level courses are also available for Devereux employees through the College of Graduate Studies.
“We are excited to partner with Immaculata and help our employees reach their personal and professional career goals,” said Devereux Vice President of Human Resources Tim Dillon. “As an organization, we are committed to providing professional development opportunities for our staff members. Devereux pursued this relationship with Immaculata as part of our Staff Tuition Assistance Program, which helps our employees obtain an affordable education. This partnership is a win-win, and we look forward to working with Immaculata on this endeavor, as well as creating new learning opportunities for our employees.”
With more than 60 undergraduate majors and minors, seven master’s degree programs, and three doctoral degree programs, Immaculata’s tuition discount will enable Devereux’s employees to take advantage of the University’s outstanding programs, including four academic programs that are in high demand at Devereux: psychology, education, nursing and social work.
“Immaculata is excited to offer this discount and we are looking forward to building a long relationship that will benefit both organizations with regard to new students and job placement opportunities,” stated Christopher Shoemaker, director of Extended Learning at Immaculata University.
