Three university presidents on one stage
As of Fall 2016, Arizona’s state universities were educating 145,939 students. The number of people working toward a brighter and better future at these institutions grows every single year and represents the future of Arizona’s workforce and economy.
Dr. Rita Cheng of Northern Arizona University, Dr. Michael Crow of Arizona State University and Dr. Robert Robbins of the University of Arizona will share updates on how each university is preparing students to enter the workforce and innovating to move the state economy forward. All three leaders will participate in a conversation about the importance of a strong university system, how business and education can work in tandem to innovate and grow the economy, and what can be done to strengthen the workforce pipeline.
