SNHU Continues to Innovate with College for America

Employers everywhere now have a new option for providing career advancement opportunities for their employees. Southern NH University, seeing the growing desire for alternatives to traditional degree programs began focusing its innovative thinkers on competency-based education. The result is College for America.

College for America is a nonprofit college built specifically to work for working adults and their employers—and to better connect workforce research, higher education, and labor market needs.

College for America partners with employers nationwide to offer their employees a rigorous college degree and online learning model that is uniquely affordable, flexibly scheduled to fit in busy lives, and built to develop competencies and promotable skills through project-based, real-world learning instead of traditional lectures and credit hours.

Founded with a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation/EDUCAUSE grant in 2012 and already in place at ConAgra, Anthem BlueCross BlueShield, McDonalds, and dozens of other employers across the country, College for America is helping employers develop talent and build leadership – and helping employees succeed.

College for America is working with the Center for Nonprofits to bring more awareness for this cost-effective program to nonprofit employers. Center members can learn more about it on NonprofitNext.
