Our Story

We work to bring the richness of Greater Philadelphia’s colleges and universities into one convenient location.

Greater Philadelphia is home to one of the richest networks of colleges and universities in the country. It can be difficult for regional employers to access such a diverse network for their training, development, and employment needs; PhillyColleges was birthed over 10 years ago from the desire to bridge that gap. By tapping into the PhillyColleges network, you will have the ability to easily connect to over 20 local colleges and universities and their resources specifically geared towards the adult learner population.

Individuals also find value from PhillyColleges by requesting information about undergraduate, graduate, or professional development programs from our member schools.

More than 100 of the region’s top employers have valued working with us to host an education fair at their headquarters, and we look forward to working with you to create a successful (free) event at your place of employment. Our goal is to minimize the work for your staff, but don’t take our word for it: read some of our employer testimonials below.
