Medvance Institute Becomes FORTIS INSTITUTE

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas — MedVance Institute, a leading post-secondary education institution in Grand Prairie, has changed its name to Fortis Institute.

The campus and its ownership remain the same; however, as part of the collaborative Fortis network of colleges and institutes, the Grand Prairie campus will continue to embrace the same core values for which it is known. But now, it also will be able to draw upon additional resources and have access to higher level educational program offerings and technology.

“The word ‘Fortis’ is derived from Greek roots and literally means strength and power. Our move to the Fortis brand demonstrates our commitment to providing students in Grand Prairie and the Dallas/Fort Worth area with the most powerful learning environment available today,” said Campus President Will Bowker.

According to Bowker, the name may have changed, but the strong relationship that exists between his campus and students and the community at large will continue…and will likely grow through its expanded resources, enhanced expertise and the strength in numbers the affiliation with other campuses brings. MedVance has been an integral part of the community for four years and draws students not only from the Grand Prairie area but also from Dallas and Fort Worth.

“We will still be Grand Prairie’s campus, but now will have more to share and give back to students, businesses and extern partners. We believe the best just got even better,” he added.

Fortis is a network of post-secondary colleges and institutes that prepares students for powerful lifelong learning opportunities and career growth. It is leading the movement among career-oriented colleges to offer more, higher level programs so students acquire skills to grow and be successful in a changing job market, while giving them the flexibility to pursue their studies in Fortis classrooms or online at their convenience.

Backed by Education Affiliates, one of the country’s most prominent privately held school groups, Fortis is a career education brand that is gaining quick acceptance from students in communities nationwide for its powerful hands-on immersion and practical approach to learning.

The Fortis educational process provides graduates with tools for establishing professional goals and achieving success in existing and emerging professions.
