Cottage Grove Place

Mount Mercy University and Cottage Grove Place have signed an educational collaboration agreement, providing considerable benefits to MMU students and CGP employees.

“We are thrilled to partner with Cottage Grove Place.” said Dr. Tim Laurent, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “The benefits to both organizations are outstanding, and we’re happy to foster this relationship as we continue to prepare health care leaders into the future.”

The partnership provides a 10 percent tuition discount—which applies to Cottage Grove Place  employees who enroll in any of the university’s accelerated, online or graduate programs—as well as relevant academic programs, access to internships, employment opportunities for MMU alumni, and a variety of other shared benefits.

“We are excited to take part in this partnership to not only deepen the relationship with MMU, but also further encourage growth opportunities for our employees,” said Samantha Barnes, human resource manager for Cottage Grove Place.

Mount Mercy holds similar educational partnerships with more than 30 local organizations, including the Buchanan County Health Center; Mercy Iowa City; Mercy Medical Center, Cedar Rapids; Regional Medical Center, Manchester; and University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.
