Business + Community Partnerships

Partner with Emporia State University Today

Academic Partnerships

Founded in 1863, Emporia State is the first public institution to offer higher learning opportunities in the State of Kansas. We are dedicated to helping students reach success in their educational goals. We partner with other academic institutions – two year and four-year colleges, technical schools, universities and international programs to expand learning opportunities for our students.

Emporia State has partnership programs with Butler Community College, Johnson County Community College, and Kansas City Kansas Community College, allowing students to complete the Elementary Education program without relocating. Visit The Teachers College Distance Partnerships to learn more about these programs.

Recruiting Partnerships

ESU is committed to helping you, our employer partner, connect with top talent in a number of optimal recruiting methods, such as posting jobs and internships, on-campus interviews, career fairs, conducting mock interviews, classroom presentations and partnerships with student organizations. We can also assist you with creating Philanthropic Programs (matching gift programs, scholarship programs, endowed professorships, named spaces on campus, etc.)
