“Cedarville Partners provides a cost-saving benefit to organizations that might not have educational assistance programs,” explained Jim Amstutz, director of graduate admissions and student success. “This is a way for us to extend what we do in preparing adult students for God’s purpose as they move forward into different career plans or opportunities that are right in front of them.”

According to Amstutz, there are students enrolled in Cedarville graduate programs from each one of the current partners. “We’re a Christ-centered institution wanting to help them further their education,” he said. “We’re built on a biblical foundation. And for some of our partners, we are right here in their backyard.”

Cedarville Partners has also extended awareness of the growing private Baptist school, which has recorded 13 consecutive record enrollments and continues to offer an expanding and innovative array of master’s degree and professional doctorate options.

“We want to serve organizations by equipping their employees for professional success and ministry impact,” Amstutz offered. “Our tagline says it all: Fully Prepared. For His Purpose. That’s what we want to do by extending these partnerships.”
