Tuition Benefit Extends to Chambers in Naugatuck, Watertown and Southbury

Waterbury, CT (April 2, 2024) – Over 1,000 members of the Waterbury Regional Chamber and its employees, including families living in the household, will be able to receive a tuition reduction as a result of a new partnership established with Post University. This partnership also extends to the three affiliate Chambers in Naugatuck, Southbury, and Watertown Oakville.

“Any chamber member interested in taking a course or pursuing a degree through Post University can receive a tuition reduction through this partnership.  This is an opportunity for educating the workforce of the future,” said Waterbury Regional Chamber President & CEO Lynn Ward.

Through the partnership, the employees of businesses who belong to the Chamber, their spouses and their family living in the household are eligible for a 20 percent tuition reduction but they must complete the application process. The tuition reduction is for online undergraduate and graduate programs, including high school family members looking to complete college coursework for general education requirements as well as nurses looking for advanced degrees.

“This tuition reduction program came about through the leadership at the Chamber who were looking to advance education opportunities for members and employees,” said Christopher Gersitz, Post University’s vice president of strategic partnerships.

“We already have partnerships with organizations in the Waterbury community, including Webster Bank, the YMCA and the Waterbury Police Department. With our deep roots as a business school, the opportunity to expand access to the business community, through the Chamber is thrilling.  We are so pleased to be able to provide a reason for the Chamber membership and its employees to join the Post University learning community,” Gersitz said.
