Scaling local partnerships to accelerate college attainment

According to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, more than 39 million Americans have some college, but no credential. This lack of educational attainment is a limiting factor not only for individual prosperity and enhanced quality of life, but also the economy of communities throughout the nation. To remove barriers to higher education such as cost and academic eligibility, together with more than 457 local partners, ASU has created low-risk college pathways with a focus on career and general education mastery certificates with the capacity to provide nationwide support to high school students, emerging college learners and non-traditional learners, anywhere, anytime. Join our panelists as they discuss how these innovative pathways and flexible learning models are integrated into various organizational structures and can scale to unlock a vast array of educational opportunities for millions of learners nationwide.
