Sister Candace Introcaso, CDP, Ph.D., La Roche President said, “We are excited to collaborate with Synergis Education to continue La Roche’s rich history of innovation and academic excellence. This partnership is designed to help La Roche address significant needs in the community and beyond.”

Synergis Education works with its partner institutions to expand curriculum development, marketing, enrollment management and data integration services. Dr. John Donohue, the company’s Chief Academic and Development Officer, stated that successful partner institutions exhibit the following characteristics: the ability to leverage the two parties’ relative strengths; a willingness to embrace options for program design and delivery; the capacity to identify and act decisively on new opportunities; and consistent support from institutional and academic leadership.

“La Roche clearly demonstrates and embraces these four points in its pursuit of excellence,” Dr. Donohue added.

The College will partner with Synergis to explore innovative programs in high-demand fields such as nursing.

Synergis Education Founder and CEO Norm Allgood stated, “The days of offering a generic MBA on nights and weekends, and watching enrollment grow, will never return. The leadership at La Roche understands this reality and has taken the necessary steps to be a leader in programmatic innovation.”
