The Latest in Coffee-College Partnerships

May 10, 2017

Peet's Coffee on Tuesday announced a tuition-reimbursement program in partnership with Oregon State University, becoming the latest coffee chain to roll out a program aimed at helping its employees earn a college degree. The initiative, known as the Peetnik Pathway to College Program, will launch this fall semester and is open to benefits-eligible full- and part-time Peet's Coffee employees. The company said it will reimburse up to $5,250 annually in tuition and fees for employees who enroll in any of the more than 20 online bachelor's degree programs offered by Oregon State. The program resembles a similar initiative launched by Starbucks in 2014 in partnership with Arizona State University.
