Our Community

Connecting Our Community

Heritage University’s commitment to the communities we serve extends beyond its mission of providing quality education for students from the surrounding area. Here, a focus on community service is woven through the culture and classrooms. Faculty and staff members proudly serve on the boards of directors and committees of many nonprofit agencies.

At Heritage, we believe in building a better community.
You can help us make a difference.

Share Your Knowledge

Clubs, classes and academic programs are always looking for experts in their field to work with students.  Your level of involvement can be anything from speaking at an event to mentoring and providing job shadowing and internship opportunities.  Contact Alumni Affairs for more information.

Share Your Connections

There is always something happening at Heritage.  When you subscribe to the university’s newsletter Wings and follow us on Facebook, you will get the latest news on the campus, faculty, student and alumni accomplishments, and events and lectures.

Share Your Support

Scholarships are as essential to students’ academic success as quality programs and dedicated faculty.  With 95% of Heritage students depending upon financial aid to make college accessible, scholarships bridge the gap left after financial aid is applied.  Contact the Office of Advancement for more information.
