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 PPL Corporation.
