Education Spotlight — A quick word from the (CCC) President. See more local, state and national education news here

| January 31, 2023

Three feet of snowfall aside, my first few weeks as President for Coconino Community College have been marked by the gratitude I feel at the welcome I received from faculty, staff and the community. My family and I feel right at home.

My focus these first couple of months is to meet with as many of CCC’s internal and external stakeholders as possible and to take a lot of notes to get a sense of the educational needs of our students and the communities we serve. I will then compile a report of “The First 100 Days,” focusing on mid- and long-term planning, highlighting what was heard, what we’re planning to do and how the College will likely move forward. I’m excited to get busy.

United Way of Northern Arizona — NE Arizona Report Lays Groundwork for Strategic Plan

United Way of Northern Arizona — NE Arizona Report Lays Groundwork for Strategic Plan

| January 31, 2023

A recently completed United Way of Northern Arizona report on building capacity to help UWNA better address critical needs in Navajo and Apache counties has identified substance abuse/mental health issues, affordable childcare and afterschool programs, and creating a skilled workforce as top priorities for the northeast region.

UWNA retained Phoenix Philanthropy Group to create the report, which was based on interviews with nonprofit leaders, elected officials, economic development directors, healthcare and education professionals, as well as current and past members of the UWNA Board of Directors.

The strategic plan being developed is similar to a process UWNA underwent several years ago in the greater Flagstaff region, which led UWNA to refocus efforts on the most critical needs in Coconino County.
