HVCU is grateful for our community’s support, and they show that appreciation in a variety of ways. Like Marist, HVCU is committed to strengthening the quality of life for their neighbors in the Hudson Valley. Marist and HVCU are pleased to partner in a unique program that allows HVCU business members to offer discounted higher education to their employees.
