In this edition of eConnect, you will notice a focus on student families and their connection to ECPI University. In a lot of ways, your university is a family helping you succeed. Faculty and staff are caring and dedicate themselves to make your experience here the foundation for a new and exciting career. You are not a number at ECPI, and we are not so large that you feel lost.
You are treated like you are part of our family, because you are an important part of this family.
At ECPI University, family includes our students, alumni, staff, faculty, externship sites, and employers. Our partnerships with organizations strengthen our ties to the community and help extend our family. Each year we work with many organizations and industry professionals who sit on our Academic Advisory Boards. Also, employers rely on us to provide entry-level employees to fill open positions, as well as to educate existing employees seeking to elevate their skills and advance within the organization. In turn, we rely on those employers to provide meaningful externships to enhance the student learning experience. We work together with our students so they can be ‘employer ready’ — professionally, technically, and personally. Partnerships become powerful when everyone involved receives something of value. We believe that is exactly what happens in your ECPI University family.
