FOR RELEASE October 17, 2016

WAYNESBURG, PA— Waynesburg University's Graduate and Professional Studies division has recently partnered with Regional Learning Alliance (RLA) in Cranberry, Pennsylvania, to offer graduate studies in business, counseling and nursing.

"The RLA is proud to welcome Waynesburg University to the campus as our 10th Academic Member," said Regional Learning Alliance Chief Executive Office Justin Griffith. "This partnership will be one of collaboration and will fulfill both our commitment to provide more degree offerings to the region and to ensure that Waynesburg University students, faculty and staff enjoy a premier learning environment."

RLA's mission is to serve as the region's premier learning center, capitalizing on the resources of an alliance of educational institutions, as well as the region's foremost conference and training center, working together to enhance the workforce and economic development vitality of the region.

"We are excited to partner with the Regional Learning Alliance to better serve our students with the convenience of the location and the comfort of the facilities," said Mary Cummings, senior vice president for graduate programs.

Fall II Session courses being offered at RLA, which begin Monday, Oct. 24, include Seminar in Applied Economics, Risk and Budget Management, and Financial Management.

Waynesburg provides graduate degrees in business, counseling, criminal investigation, education and nursing. In addition to RLA's campus in Cranberry, the University offers graduate classes in Monroeville and Southpointe.
