Our partnerships within the community are what makes the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) a powerful option for students. Without the support of our community and partners, USG would not be able to provide additional support to our students in these three distinct areas:

Program and Student Engagement

Invest in student achievement

Getting involved with educational events and academic programs at USG helps recognize student accomplishments and support the development of skills necessary for students to excel in today’s rapidly changing professional world.

Internships & Career Advancement

Invest in a talented workforce

Employers and Alumni partner with USG to provide real world experience for students through internships and part-time employment. Recruiting at USG is a trusted way to connect with highly skilled graduates who are workforce ready. Students at USG are highly motivated to live, study and work in this community, as 88% of graduate’s work in the region.

Scholarships, Grants, & Endowments

Invest in opportunities for education

Students at USG are serious about achieving their academic and career goals while balancing the demands of work, family and outside responsibilities. A lack of financial resources is perhaps the biggest challenge that students face, particularly those who transfer from a community college. USG works with each donor to outline a structure for their gift and provides the opportunity for donors to meet the students they support.
