A Community of Innovation and Collaboration
At Rio, we pride ourselves on offering our students an educational experience that will help prepare them for entering new careers or making professional strides forward in their current job. That’s why we’ve formed collaborative partnerships with organizations in the business community to provide our students with a variety of services and programs that will give them a head start on their college careers, give them the skills and knowledge they’ll need to transition to a new position in their field, or prepare them for changing lanes to embark on a new professional path.
