Bimba Manufacturing of University Park pledged its support for the LEAP Employer-Educator Compact.

The LEAP Employer-Educator Compact brings leaders from business and academia together to ensure that all college students have access to quality liberal education that fully prepares them for work, life, and citizenship. Through collaborative training events, senior projects, undergraduate research, and internships, the members of the LEAP Employer-Educator Compact are working to prepare the nation's graduates for jobs that require a broader set of skills and technical expertise.

By signing the compact, Bimba promises to continue its long-standing commitment to offering high-quality educational opportunities for the next generation.

"Bimba has long been an active proponent of professional training," said Maureen Fitzsimmons, vice president of human resources. "With internship programs in application engineering, R&D, marketing, senior project opportunities, and on-site 'practicum days' for Chicago Charter high school students, Bimba is continually working to reinforce the ideals of LEAP."
