Speaking about the Perrigo partnership, Uversity’s Chief Executive Officer, Colleen Dube said, “We are delighted with this collaboration at such a challenging time as it enables us to support even more Scholars. Our partnership with Perrigo provides us with additional financial resources and invaluable insights, inputs and expertise from Perrigo that will assist Scholars in their professional and personal development. We are excited at the opportunities that the Perrigo collaboration will create for Uversity and its Scholars.”
Dr. Grainne Quinn, Perrigo Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, stated, “Through the years, Perrigo and the Perrigo Foundation have concentrated on making a positive impact in the communities in which we operate focusing on health and education. This commitment invests in the future workforce of our company, industry and surrounding communities. In Ireland, one way we pursue this goal is by supporting individuals in their higher education pursuits. We are proud to partner with Uversity and help adult learners realise their personal development goals and look forward to supporting the Scholars throughout their individual journeys and to celebrating their success.”
