NEW “P.A.C.E.” PROGRAM ELIMINATES OBSTACLES TO FINISHING A BACHELOR’S DEGREE

TOLEDO, OH (July 15, 2013) Two local schools have joined forces to help make obtaining a bachelor’s degree more affordable. The presidents ofHerzing University – Toledo and Northwest State Community College held a signing ceremony to announce a new P.A.C.E. program, which gives students an education option that is Progressive, Attainable, Convenient, and Economical. The collaboration offers students the best of both worlds: the cost efficiencies of a Northwest State education combined with the career-focused recognition of Herzing University. 

The cost of higher education, the challenges of a work-school-family balance, and other potential obstacles are discouraging many students from pursuing a college education. This initiative looks to remove some of those barriers, making students’ dreams to better their lives through education a reality. 

“While many colleges and universities are usually in competition to enroll students, we recognize that collaborations should be happening instead to make higher education more affordable and accessible,” said Greg Guzman, president of Herzing University’s Toledo campus. “The P.A.C.E. program is all about the student—which is the way it should be.” 

"As a community college, Northwest State is pleased to be working with Herzing to provide new opportunities that will allow our students to move forward with their education beyond the associate degree,” said Dr. Thomas Stuckey, Northwest State Community College president. “Our students are looking for flexible options that will build on their current skills and gain the knowledge needed to advance in their chosen career field." 

Currently students are able to pursue the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree, which includes the highly-sought after SAP educational component, and already there are plans to add degrees in technology, healthcare, and public safety to the program offerings. 

To take advantage of the P.A.C.E. program, students would complete two-thirds (or three years) of their coursework through Northwest State Community College, which offers a lower per-credit hour cost of a community college. Students would then finish the final third (or one year) of their bachelor’s degree through Herzing University – Toledo. The two schools are compatible because both institutions are regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and are members of the North Central Association. 

As a matter of convenience, Herzing University – Toledo has the ability to offer a student’s remaining business courses either in the classroom or online. As Lucas County’s first SAP University Alliance Institution, Herzing University – Toledo also is in a unique position to offer training that is in great demand by local corporations and businesses.   

“Herzing’s bachelor’s in business management degree helps to bridge the gap between higher education and the needs of Northwest Ohio’s employers,” said Guzman. “Those who pursue this business management degree will position themselves competitively for any future openings at some of the region’s largest and most prestigious companies.” Sixty percent of all businesses globally run on the SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform.  Locally, companies such as Owens-Illinois, Owens Corning, The Andersons, The City of Toledo, Marathon Oil, Cooper Tire, Rexam, Chrysler, Ford, and Pilkington use the software platform to manage their businesses. Their need for a qualified and trained workforce is well-established.

TOLEDO, OH (June 14, 2013) – Herzing University – Toledo is the latest Northwest Ohio institution of higher education to join the Diamante Awards. Herzing will offer three annual scholarships to help outstanding local Latino students attend college.

“At Herzing University, we are committed to helping students achieve their career goals,” said Greg Guzman, Toledo campus president. “We are pleased and honored to join the Diamante Latino Scholars Campaign in partnership with four other colleges and universities. As a Latino myself, I find it extremely important, both personally and professionally, to help the next generations of Latino youth in the region improve their lives.”

The 2013 Diamante Awards presentation will take place in the Franciscan Center at Lourdes University on Friday, September 13, 2013. For more information about the Diamante Awards and to nominate an individual or group online, visit http://diamantetoledo.org. Nominations are open now through August 4. 

To celebrate the profound and lasting influence that Latinos have on American history, values, and culture, the Diamante (“diamond” in Spanish) Awards were founded in 1989 by IMAGE of Northwest Ohio, a local Latino advocacy group. The awards recognize individuals and organizations for their outstanding achievements and service to Latinos.

TOLEDO, OH (Aug. 30, 2013) Two local schools have joined forces to help make finishing a GED more accessible. Herzing University – Toledo will begin offering weekend GED classes in partnership with the Penta Career Center Adult Education Dept.

GED classes will begin the weekend of September 14 –15 at the Herzing University – Toledo campus, 5212 Hill Ave. (Hill and Reynolds intersection). Saturday classes will run 9 a.m. to noon, while the Sunday classes will operate 1 to 4 p.m.

The partnership is a first-of-its-kind for the region, because no GED classes currently are offered on Sundays. The challenges of a work-school-family balance and other potential obstacles are discouraging many students from pursuing a GED, which affords them the opportunity for furthering their education. This initiative looks to remove some of those barriers, making students’ dreams to better their lives through education a reality.

“Education is the whole reason why we exist, so assisting with GED courses for teens and adults is a worthwhile mission—especially if it makes completing high school more attainable and accessible for a hard-to-reach community of people who may be working,” said Greg Guzman, president of Herzing University’s Toledo campus. “A weekend program of GED courses supplements the great work Penta does in the community at local libraries, The Source, and other locations.”

Debbie Morris, ABLE Coordinator at Penta, agrees the new program will help many adults, and the possibilities do not end there. "Penta's Adult Education Department is looking forward to this unique opportunity to partner with Herzing University. In addition to offering our GED/ABLE classes on site at Herzing, Penta Adult Education is also pursuing additional educational opportunities for our students with Herzing," said Morris.

Penta’s Adult Basic Education program is a student-centered learning opportunity for adults who desire to improve their learning and earning opportunities. The classes provide adult learners an opportunity to improve reading, writing and math skills in preparation to take the Official GED Test. Classes are held two days per week for three hours each day. Registration is required and orientation is mandatory.

            Those interested in learning about obtaining a GED should contact Herzing University – Toledo at 419.776.0300 or the Penta Career Center Adult Education program at 419.661.6555.
