Mid-America Christian University (MACU) has partnered with the Chickasaw Nation Department of Education (CN) to provide eligible tribal members and tribal employees with educational assistance.
With this partnership, members of the Chickasaw Nation can earn a degree at MACU on-site or online while receiving a 30% tuition discount. Student fees for members of the Chickasaw Nation will also be waived.
“Education is one of the most powerful tools organizations can use to positively impact change in their employees and community,” said MACU President Phil Greenwald. “Through this partnership, MACU will make the cost of education more affordable for citizens and employees of the Chickasaw Nation.”
Tribal members who take advantage of the new partnership will be able to enroll in any of MACU’s wide variety of bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and may receive college credit for prior learning that occurred outside of a college classroom environment.
Through the accredited degree programs and classes offered at MACU, students will learn from curriculum taught by faculty members who are experts in their field, and will help prepare students for a successful career in today’s job market.
“Companies depend on a highly-skilled workforce to meet the challenges of today’s increasingly competitive marketplace,” Greenwald said. “By partnering together, Mid-America Christian University and the Chickasaw Nation will maximize students’ success through degree attainment and acquisition of advanced skills necessary to help achieve the Chickasaw Nation’s education and strategic training goals. We look forward to a successful partnership.”
