Evening College gains grants
for Corporate Partnership Program
The College has been approved
to carry out two grant initiatives from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
Department of Community and Economic Development. The grants are for training
and development through the College's Corporate Partnerships Program.
The customized job training grants were awarded to Bethlehem-based SunGard
Pentamation Inc. and Northampton Generating Company. The SunGard Pentamation
grant is for $150,000, while the Northampton Generating grant is for $125,000.
"We work hand-in-hand with these companies, starting with writing
the grant proposals, right through the final training sessions,"
says Nancy Gratz, associate dean of Muhlenberg's Evening College and director
of the Corporate Partnerships Program. "We assess the company's training
needs and develop individual, customized programs to meet those needs."
Gratz notes that "in some cases, we have expertise on our faculty
to design and provide the training. In other cases, training is provided
by outside experts. Our goal is to improve company competitiveness by
enhancing employees' skills through training."
In addition, Corporate Partnerships at Muhlenberg is working with several
area companies conducting on-site training. Customized programs were recently
provided for Hatfield Quality Meats, HYDAC Technology Corporation and
