Introducing Grads to Work

A new chapter in employment and education​.

Grads to Work, a Strayer University initiative, helps employers attract, train and retain diverse talent. Our mission is two-fold: connect students with significant employment and education opportunities and provide a results-oriented way for organizations to reach critical diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives.​

Meaningful DEI recruitment

Extend your impact beyond your organization and support your community through hiring from our diverse talent pool.

Skilled talent

Because of our workforce readiness training, every candidate you hire from our talent pipeline has the foundation needed to thrive in their role from day one.

Effective retention strategy

While working for you, participants pursue a pathway to their degree at no cost to them, making employees more invested in your organization and engaged in their work.

Getting started

How it works:

  1. We recruit for you. Through our community partnerships, Strayer recruits diverse talent to fill your entry-level positions.

  2. We help build core competencies. Interested candidates enroll in and complete a Strayer workforce readiness course that prepares them to be successful on the job.

  3. You decide who to hire. Your organization interviews eligible candidates who have successfully completed the career readiness course.

  4. We partner with you to provide education. Strayer matches tuition to your annual tuition assistance amount, offering employees a no-cost pathway to their associate degree.

Partner with us

We believe education, combined with equitable employment opportunities, creates positive change in our society. If you share our vision, work with us to help lead the way to a brighter future.
