Baldwin Wallace University has partnered with Cuyahoga County to provide a low-cost education to the county's workforce. This partnership is part of the county government's tuition assistance program and has the support of BW's president and board of trustees.

BW is one of three educational institutions in the newly approved tuition assistance partnership, joining Cleveland State University and Tri-C as the only independent university option. The rationale is to support a thriving, upwardly mobile, highly educated, public workforce in the Greater Cleveland area.
