Regis College and The Education Cooperative (TEC) announce a strategic partnership to support TEC’s employee development and recruitment programs through access to undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and professional certificate programs which include tuition savings rates, and use of the Regis campus facilities.

Regis creates unique partnerships to provide for the needs of its partners. The partnerships offer benefits such as discounted tuition, customized program delivery (some offer on-site classes) and admission to university events. With regard to employee recruitment, the partnerships feature access to Regis graduates, a talent pool of exceptionally prepared and dedicated students in several fields, including health care and education.

“TEC is excited to participate in and share this opportunity with our member districts, their staff, and families. TEC’s mission statement: ‘Together we create more possibilities creating personalized pathways to individual student success’ is exemplified by this partnership,” said Jean Kenney, Director of Professional Learning and Leadership.

“Central to the Regis College mission is expanding access to higher education opportunities,” said Regis College President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN. “These strategic partnerships support local organizations in their efforts to provide exciting staff development opportunities and to recruit the best candidates for open positions in their organizations. This partnership is designed to provide employees of The Education Cooperative a collaborative, flexible, and convenient way to earn college credits and advance their career at a discounted rate with mentorship from accomplished faculty with real-world experience.”

Partners have access to facilities on the Regis campus located in Weston on more than 100 acres, offering meeting space, a library, fine arts center with theater, auditorium and gallery, athletic facilities and ample parking. For projects such as product development, partners also have access to Regis’ intellectual capital, including an infrastructure for joint research drawing on faculty renowned in healthcare and allied professions, and opportunities for incubator space and simulation labs.

Depending on the program, Regis partners’ employees and their family members receive tuition discounts of 10 to 25 percent. The discount is eligible for all on-campus, hybrid, onsite and online certificates, and graduate and doctoral degree programs. There is no cost to establish a partnership, but the mutual commitment empowers partner employees to pursue their educational goals through the university’s exemplary academic programs.

The Education Cooperative (TEC) provides an engaging and supportive learning environment for students with complex learning needs. TEC’s talented, experienced, and caring educators work as an integrated team to empower students from our member districts and larger regional community to embrace their dreams and goals, take control of their lives, and be actively involved in their own learning process in order to reach their full potential.

TEC member school districts include: Canton, Dedham, Dover, Dover-Sherborn, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Natick, Needham, Norwood, Sherborn, Walpole, Wayland, and Westwood, Massachusetts.
