Here is Renee's interview with Mark E. Scheinberg, President of Goodwin University.
He shares details about Goodwin's great partnership with the University of Bridgeport and more ways they're helping to educate Connecticut and beyond!
Partnership with University of Bridgeport
Goodwin University and Sacred Heart University, along with Paier College of Art, announced that they intend to work with the University of Bridgeport to create a new model for higher education that capitalizes on the programmatic strengths of each school.
Sacred Heart University, Goodwin University, the University of Bridgeport, and Paier College of Art will be the initial higher education institutions to form a unique educational opportunity in the city of Bridgeport. The shared goal of the four schools is to separately serve certificate- and degree-seeking students at all academic levels in a centralized setting on the current University of Bridgeport campus.
The advantages of co-locating multiple and distinct schools within a single learning environment are considerable. Within an educational consortium model that makes use of co-located facilities, students will be able to take advantage of the strengths of each institution to chart academic courses that best position them for career readiness. When appropriate, students may navigate from one school to another to continue their educations at progressively higher levels, depending on their degree focus.
Depending on requirements, facilities, and faculty expertise, some programs are likely to be combined or to shift from one school to another. In some cases, completely new programs will be introduced. Goodwin, Sacred Heart, and Paier will assume a number of academic programs now being offered by the University of Bridgeport. Current University of Bridgeport students will be guided through to the completion of their planned courses of study on time and with financial aid packages that mirror their current package as closely as possible.
