As a College committed to providing affordable, post-secondary education that is relevant and responsive to the labor market and community needs, our strategy must include the development and exploration of partnerships that will advance the College's mission of leadership in service to others. The College has already identified and established meaningful strategic partnerships that are mutually beneficial for both parties, with national and regional organizations who hold similar mission along with high professional standards.
A database of key college partnerships was created and is housed in Academic Affairs, and a Strategic Partnership Advisory Group is being formed. The group is charged with identifying prospective strategic partners, developing strategies designed to move a current relationship to strategic partnership status, and evaluating current strategic partners. To be considered a strategic partner with Springfield College, the relationship must enhance brand awareness and academic reputation, increase opportunities for student engagement, and result in increased revenue for Springfield College
