Southern New Hampshire University signed a multi-year partnership agreement with the New England Patriots. The partnership will provide opportunities for SNHU students, including internships and guest lectures, as well as educational community outreach programs throughout the region.
As a private, nonprofit university, SNHU is committed to expanding access to education and providing high quality and affordable degree programs that meet the needs of students. As a partner with the Patriots, SNHU will support education initiatives in the community and provide new and exciting opportunities for students.
“Partnering with the Patriots and the Kraft Sports Group will provide an opportunity to enhance educational opportunities for our students and give back to the New England community,” said Paul LeBlanc, President, Southern New Hampshire University. “Our partnership will include community-based initiatives aimed at supporting youth education programs and the military, as well as internship opportunities and guest lectures for our students.”
SNHU also will work with the Patriots and the Kraft Sports Group to support and recognize members of the military. The partnership will include scholarship opportunities for military veterans, as well as tuition benefits for staff members of the Kraft Sports Group and their families.
“We look forward to working closely with Southern New Hampshire University to extend our reach in providing education opportunities for students in New England,” said Murray Kohl, vice president of corporate sales for the New England Patriots. “Both organizations are committed to improving the accessibility of education at all levels.”
More than 2,200 guests visited campus for an action-packed line up of homecoming events Oct. 13-15, and alumni and students checked in on social media from Tennessee, Minnesota, and Italy.
SNHU unveiled its 24th mini-pitch to help in-need communities across the country. This one was built in partnership with the LA Galaxy Foundation in possibly the neediest of communities.
