Don’t miss out on this incredible event that could shape your future aspirations forever.

An Economic Imperative
The future of Arizona is inextricably linked to our state’s ability to produce a robust educated workforce. It is estimated that over 68% of all Arizona jobs will require some form of postsecondary training by 2020, yet less than 18% of Arizona residents 25-64 have a Bachelor’s degree and only 48% have an Associates’ degree. Join us for this event to help advocate for the need to help increase the number of Arizona students who pursue a higher education.
