The Alliance partners with universities

The Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress has announced educational partnerships with Auburn University, Auburn, Ala.; Colorado State University, Fort Collins; and University of Florida, Gainesville.

The Alliance will be working with the universities' construction management schools to incorporate more roofing-specific curriculums into the construction management undergraduate degree programs; provide scholarships to students and faculty; and develop internship programs with roofing contractor companies, manufacturers and distributors.

The scholarships and internships are scheduled for the near future; additional competitive scholarships and faculty scholarships for work related to the partnership also will be offered.
