Achieve60AZ Update
 
To meet our 60 percent educational attainment goal, Arizona needs 1,000,000 more Arizonans to earn a 2- or 4-year degree or an industry credential. A real opportunity for Arizona to meet its state attainment goal is through adult learners.
 
Through the Lumina Foundation Adult Promise grant, Achieve60AZ is working with Arizona cities, counties, tribal communities, and the state to reimagine public service employee tuition benefit programs. At its July 2019 kick off, representatives of municipalities from across the state came together to discuss how to engage more adults in higher education. Read more.
