WGU Indiana has donated 20 laptops to the Urban League of Northwest Indiana. The two organizations have enjoyed a partnership since 2011, which offers tuition discounts to individuals affiliated with the National Urban League. The donation is part of the online university’s commitment to expanding access to higher education to adults across the state.
“WGU Indiana applauds the work that the Urban League does to elevate underserved populations,” said Allison Barber, chancellor of WGU Indiana. “We’re happy to contribute to their mission with these laptops in the hopes that they will help provide access to education resources to adults in northwest Indiana.”
The National Urban League is dedicated to economic empowerment in order to elevate the standard of living in historically underserved urban communities. WGU Indiana and the National Urban League are a great fit because of WGU Indiana’s commitment to offering opportunities for accessible, affordable online education.
“The Urban League of Northwest Indiana is grateful to WGU Indiana for their generous donation,” said Dr. Vanessa Allen, President and CEO of the Urban League of Northwest Indiana. “Their online programs offer flexibility, high quality, and affordability and give individuals a great opportunity to earn a degree that will be respected by employers.”
Individuals affiliated with Urban League programs who earn their degree from WGU Indiana will enjoy the personalized support of an assigned mentor, rigorous yet flexible courses, a variety of degree programs in four colleges to choose from, and the credibility of a degree from an accredited online university — all for a tuition that’s lower than most other online schools.
