The partnership will provide professional opportunities to both RMU and the Pittsburgh Penguins in many ways. Leadership development will be provided to Penguins staff and professional job opportunities such as internships to RMU students.
This announcement comes days after RMU announced its plans through 2021, one of which includes making Robert Morris a preferred strategic partner for corporations and other organizations in order to develop new streams of non-tuition revenue.
