Our strategic alliances with Universities

Our strategic alliances


Jesuit Worldwide Learning has an extensive network of collaborating partners around the world.  Collaboration and worldwide alliances are sought with universities and mission-aligned strategic partners.

Metropolitan State University of Denver

"Metropolitan State University of Denver  has transformed the lives of more than 90,000 people in Denver and Colorado through affordable degree programs, innovative public-private partnerships and a commitment to diversity.  That’s why MSU Denver now stands not only as a preeminent public urban university but also a bastion of the American dream."

"At Metropolitan State University of Denver, we believe that every student should have an opportunity to better their life. And we know that higher education is the key factor in upward economic and social mobility. That’s why we offer the highest-quality education at the lowest tuition rate in Colorado.

Our students come from every background and experience. We have veterans looking to re-establish themselves in the workforce, first-generation college students trying to do a little better than their parents and plenty of people who want to change directions in their careers. They may have taken a zig-zagging path to get to college, but they find their way here, and leave as Roadrunners.

We graduate Fulbright scholars, award-winning novelists, noted academics, pioneering scientists and many others who are at the very top of their fields. And that’s further proof of why we need to give every student a fair shot, why we don’t define ourselves by who we exclude, but by who we include. Because every student has the potential to be something or someone greater, to move up the social and economic ladder; in short, to achieve the American dream."
