A new agreement between Central Michigan University and the
Michigan Municipal League will make earning a college degree more affordable for many community leaders around Michigan.
CMU is offering league members, employees and their families a 15 percent tuition discount for more than 30 academic programs offered online and through classes taken at
CMU satellite locations.
Participants also can earn credit for work and life experiences and can access programs that help them earn their degree faster.
Dan Gilmartin, CEO and executive director of the league, said the agreement with CMU will provide valuable assistance to members and employees wishing to pursue higher education.
“It also will help enhance the professionalism of the appointed and elected officials and staff who are guiding the growth and development of Michigan’s municipalities,” he said.
Pete Ross, CMU vice provost of academic development, said the agreement is in line with the
university’s strategic goals to graduate leaders, develop community partnerships and improve the economy.
“CMU is committed to supporting Michigan’s current and future leadership. We are proud to partner with the League as its members and employees work to improve communities around the state.”
