Arizona educators innovate to meet evolving challenges of students

In an era when college tuition is skyrocketing, government funding is plummeting and operating costs continue to soar, how can students remain afloat? The path ahead for the modern student is icy at best, littered with several menacing obstacles. How can colleges and universities prevent the metaphoric ocean liner that is the student from colliding into the collective $1.56 trillion pool of existing student loan debt? As far as Arizona’s higher education institutions are concerned, many are coming to the aid of students by facing these challenges head-on. Strategies are being implemented in pragmatic, proactive and aggressive ways to help dismantle student-loan debt — along with additional obstacles to higher education. In talking with leaders from Arizona State University, The University of Arizona, the Maricopa County Community College District, Galvanize, and Grand Canyon University, it’s clear that when it comes to the proverbial iceberg threatening educational attainment, it’s time to develop full-steam-ahead solutions.
