Post University Creating Industry-Leading Online Education Hub in Downtown Waterbury

Tenancy in Historic Howland-Hughes Building Will Move 400 Jobs Downtown in 2019

WATERBURY, Conn., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In a nod to its origins as a one-building schoolroom in downtown Waterbury, Post University® CEO John L. Hopkins announced the University will move about 400 associates back downtown in 2019 and expects to continue employment growth over the next few years. Post University has signed a tenancy agreement for Waterbury's landmark Howland-Hughes building on Bank Street to create a state-of-the-art Online Education Hub. 

"We're about to change the face of online education," Hopkins said.

"This new hub in Downtown Waterbury will be a forward-thinking space, designed for maximum associate connectedness and utilizing the most innovative and exceptional mobile learning tools available today," Hopkins added. "We are exponentially increasing our student-support system technologies and learning management systems to provide Post students, wherever they may be in the world, the most extraordinary and personalized learning experience possible."

Post's Main Campus on Country Club Road in Waterbury and Middlebury, will remain in full-operation and is enjoying a resurgence in enrollments, with more students on campus this spring than ever before. Some campus associates will make the downtown move, freeing up valuable space for classrooms as the campus student population grows. 

"Our Main Campus provides a beautiful and engaging environment for student learning and promotes the close-knit sense of 'family' that fosters the personalized student experiences for which we are known," Hopkins pointed out. "It's what we're all about."

Regarding the move to downtown, Hopkins says it's far more than a simple "shifting of offices."  Rather, he says it's about reinforcing Post's® commitment to the City of Waterbury and connecting the school's 128-year history with its exciting future as it continues to evolve as a modern education innovator. 

By moving hundreds of professionals to downtown, Hopkins believes Post will add a sense of vibrancy to Waterbury that will make the area more appealing to other businesses. And, as the University grows and expands its downtown presence, the benefits will become even stronger.

"We are committed to Waterbury because we care about the City, our legacy, and our history with the downtown area," Hopkins said. "We hope this move will further a transformation of the area, bring in new business for a host of downtown establishments, and spur exciting partnerships with our new neighbors."

Focusing on qualities that set it apart from other schools, the University has contemporized its brand, reinvigorating core values with renewed emphasis on personalizing student experiences, providing students extraordinary support teams, streamlining student processes for easy and seamless experiences from enrollment to commencement, and creating a new visual identity that symbolizes the importance of these enhancements. More than just a tagline or motto, Post Makes It Personal is a re-focused cultural commitment that is manifest in every aspect of the University's learning experience.

"Every student has different circumstances, aspirations and challenges, which require individualized or personal solutions…one student at a time," Hopkins noted.
