BROOKLYN AND PATCHOGUE, N.Y. – St. Joseph’s College (SJC) is pleased to announce its newly created educational partnership with Northwell Health. As part of this partnership, the College will offer a generously discounted tuition rate to all Northwell Health employees who wish to enroll for land-based education at either SJC Long Island or SJC Brooklyn. Enrolled students must be new to SJC or wish to further their education as graduate students.
“SJC has been proactive in developing partnerships with a number of corporations,” said Gail Lamberta, Ph.D., associate dean of community development and chair of the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies at SJC. “These corporate entities, both large and small, provide quality opportunities for our many internship programs. As such, our students are able to gain invaluable experiences that often lead to viable professional positions within their respective disciplines.”
The College’s current educational partners include Teachers Federal Credit Union (TFCU), Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center, Long Island Railroad, Catholic Charities, Estee Lauder, Ridgewood Savings Bank, The Brooklyn Diocese and National Grid.
“Professionals from many of our corporate partnerships serve on academic-specific advisory councils, as panelists and presenters, both in class and at organized events, and work in a collaborative way on initiatives that have a positive impact on our local and global communities,” Dr. Lamberta said. “Together, with our partners, SJC is able to stay on the cutting edge of programs and services, which enhance the quality of our academic programs and better prepares our students for the 21st century workforce.”
