Troy University and the City of Talladega have entered into a partnership that will give city employees a 10% discount on tuition for all TROY programs, both online and in-class.
In addition to the tuition discount, TROY will waive all application fees for City of Talladega employees.
The partnership will enable city employees to pursue degrees that could lead to advancement within the organization, said Staci Hutto, Corporate Partner Coordinator for Troy University.
“This new partnership will support continued professional development and education for City of Talladega employees through the vast degree programs and learning formats available at TROY,” Hutto said. “This enhances the City of Talladega’s reputation as an organization that values a skilled and knowledgeable workforce”
Tayler Drummond, Human Resources Director for the City of Talladega, called the partnership a great opportunity for city employees. There are many opportunities for advancement within the city, Drummond said, but many positions prefer or require a degree.
“We have 13 departments at the City, with a multitude of professions and a lot of room for growth,” Drummond said. “Our hope is that through this partnership with Troy University, our employees will obtain the support and encouragement they need to reach for their goals and advance in their careers. We want our employees to have the best chance at obtaining their dream job.”
Troy University partners with numerous businesses, health systems, school districts, municipalities, professional associations, and other organizations to offer employees unique opportunities for educational enhancement and career advancement. For information, visit www.troy.edu/partnerships.
