TIFFIN — According to some projections, emerging technologies will displace 30% of workers over the next decade.
As workers face the lifelong demand for new skills, Tiffin University is looking to offer shorter-term credentials, either in place of or embedded in traditional degree programs, and as a result, TU Connects was designed.
In concert with transforming lives through education, Tiffin University will connect individuals to Ohio industry and business communities to provide solutions from new employee onboarding and supervisory training to executive coaching and everything in-between.
“Individuals and businesses can now upskill themselves or their company through Tiffin University’s newest and seamless initiative, TU Connects,” said Ron Lonzo, Vice President of Strategic Innovation.
“Simply stated, TU Connects is an innovative and affordable alternative to aid employees or their businesses to become better at their jobs. Many companies desire to improve the quality of their workforce such as individuals aspire job security, and TU Connects will take the guesswork out of how and where to begin.”
Scholarships and a pay-later income share agreement may be available.

This is in partnership with Allegro Learning, an Online Applied Cyber Security Essentials (ACE) non-credit bootcamp and is an effective way to jumpstart a move to the cybersecurity field.
Digital Badges, Webinars, Seminars, and Custom Solutions are also in the planning stage.
