Our partnership with Widener enables our team members to continue the educational opportunities they’ve always wanted to pursue, but they’re able to do so at their own pace and for a discounted cost.  The wide variety of academic areas of study that are available serves as a perfect fit given the wide range of professionals that our company employs – there’s something for everyone.  For these reasons and more, Monroe Energy is grateful for the opportunity to partner with one of the region’s best universities.
