Partnerships

Partnership programs challenge you to engage with your passion and gain valuable experience alongside industry professionals.

A special partnership between the Theater for Community Program and The Barrow Group Theatre Company, a New York City-based theater dedicated to producing new and groundbreaking American plays, gives students the experience of staging their productions, and working and studying with Barrow Group’s professional artists and staff. 

Laboratory Synergy, a leading world supplier of high-end scientific lab equipment, sends talented and driven Quinnipiac students each year to its partner’s lab facilities in Germany. There, they gain proficiency with state-of-the-art chemical instruments before returning to Lab Synergy’s headquarters in Goshen, NY, to apply what they’ve learned in analytical research.

Through a partnership with Alianza Americana, science majors have the opportunity to be part of the Community Health and Wellness Delegation. Participants travel to Leon, Nicaragua, to raise awareness among locals and school students about crucial health-related topics, from prenatal, wound and dental care to proper CPR techniques. Delegates also have the option of taking Spanish, cooking and salsa lessons, touring coffee plantations and participating in other culturally immersive experiences.

Through a partnership with Abingdon Theatre Company, Quinnipiac students are connected with mentors, playwrights, directors, actors and designers from the New York City theater scene, who guide the students through each step of creating the festival. Ultimately seven student-written plays will receive fully mounted productions in New York City.
