Owens students can earn Lourdes business degreesWritten by Emily Gibb | | firstname.lastname@example.org
A new partnership will allow Owens Community College students to earn a Bachelor of Science four-year degree from Lourdes College beginning in the fall.
“We are thrilled to provide Owens Community College students the opportunity to take their first steps toward a bachelor’s degree at Lourdes College on the Toledo-area campus,” said Renay Scott, executive vice president and provost of Owens Community College, in a news release.
Students who enroll in the program can choose from eight business majors, including accounting, accounting and finance, business administration, health care administration, human resource management, integrated business, marketing and management.
They will pursue the majority of their Lourdes credit hours in College Hall on the Owens Toledo-area campus, but be taught by Lourdes faculty.
“This is a unique partnership in that it connects a public institution with a private institution — but the connection is really a perfect match,” said Janet Robinson, vice president for academic affairs at Lourdes College, in a news release. “Both Lourdes and Owens place a strong emphasis on affordability and personalized attention. We have a long history of working together to ensure student success, and this is a terrific continuation of that effort.”
Eligible students who transfer to Lourdes to complete their degree receive Pathways scholarships — renewable merit-based awards that provide up to $2,000 of tuition assistance per year.
Open houses for the program will take place March 23 from noon to 2 p.m. and April 19 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the College Hall Atrium at Owens’ Toledo-area campus.
