Globe University hosts an annual Community Partners Luncheon to recognize those in our communities who have worked closely with our campuses, whether through service and applied-learning projects, the university’s Community Service Day, or by hiring our graduates.
On behalf of the Globe University-Woodbury campus, Mary Giuliani Stephens, mayor of Woodbury, Minn., said a few words about Globe University’s presence in the community. She commented on how important it is to support one another and how the future success of the city rests in large part on this sector of the community.
“I had the privilege of attending Globe University’s Community Partners Luncheon and learned about the amazing partnerships Globe has developed over the years,” said Mayor Stephens. “The heartfelt thanks and emotions were evident. Globe’s partners shared their stories about the positive and transformational impact Globe and its students are having in communities across the state.”
Mayor Stephens also spoke at Globe University-Woodbury’s graduation this past June. Click here to read more.
Along with the Mayor of Woodbury, Globe University-Woodbury campus’s community partners from Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest (JAUM) and representatives from JP Staffing who hire our graduates attended the luncheon in support of the Woodbury campus.
Throughout the year, Globe University-Woodbury extends the classroom into the community by working with area businesses and nonprofits in developing internships, class projects and community service projects. Globe also opens their doors to many community organizations to utilize their facilities at no cost.
As a higher education facility, we are committed to serving our students, their future employers, and the communities in which we live and work. Our contribution begins as we consult with local business people and professionals, developing curriculum that prepares students for today’s workforce.
