United Illuminating Company

For over 17 years, The United Illuminating Company (UI) has been a strong supporter of Gateway Community College. UI enjoys its partnership with the Gateway Community College Foundation because it believes that individuals interested in pursuing higher education should have the opportunity to do so.

In addition to the scholarships, when Gateway decided to build a new community college campus in 2011, the UI Foundation eagerly supported the project by providing funds to assist with the cost of technology and equipment for the Electrical Laboratory. This level of funding ensured that students interested in this field of work had the necessary state of the art equipment that would allow them to compete in the 21st century environment The support provided by our company allows us to take part in a small way by helping motivated and dedicated students to pursue their dreams and achieve their greatest potential.

The UI mission: We create value as a premier provider of utility and energy related services.
