Bryant University is fortunate to have Amica Insurance as an outstanding friend, neighbor, and partner as it prepares students for success in an age of unlimited global opportunity.

The Amica Companies Foundation supports the University’s commitment to academic and student-life excellence at Bryant. The Foundation helped fund construction of the George E. Bello Center for Information and Technology and its generous matching gift program supports scholarships as well as academic and student-life programs.

The company is well-known and well-regarded on Bryant’s Smithfield campus as thousands of students have prepared for success at the Amica Center for Career Education, which bears its name. The company continues to be a tremendous partner for the Center, working with students through programs from Resumania to Mock Interview Day as well as hosting site visits. Amica also recruits interns and full-time employees.

Amica’s relationship with Bryant University goes well beyond recruiting graduates. As a company that focuses on building strong relationships with customers and local communities, Amica understands the value and importance of events that Bryant sponsors. For more than a decade, the company has been actively involved with the Women’s Summit, serving as lead sponsor for the past four years. The Supply Chain Management Summit, Bryant’s Career Fair, and Welcome Back Weekend have all benefited from Amica’s support and commitment to give back to the community.

The Amica Companies Foundation has long exemplified the title “Champion of Philanthropy” through its exceptional generosity and leadership.

Bryant University is deeply appreciative of the many contributions of the Amica Companies Foundation and Amica employees in the areas of student involvement, educational initiatives, leadership, and philanthropic support. Bryant University proudly calls the Amica Companies Foundation a Champion for Philanthropy and a true Friend of the University.
