ASU Insight: Arizona’s Economic Imperative - Leading the Nation in Latino Student Success
President Crow outlines the value of college attainment to the individual and to society, the impact of closing the Latino education gap on the Arizona economy, and how ASU is working to address this critical issue.
Educating every student in Arizona is essential to ensuring our state’s economic prosperity, yet a growing portion of Arizona’s future workforce is falling short of essential degree attainment. This is particularly true of the fastest growing demographic in our state – the Latino population.
Arizona has an opportunity to lead the nation in closing the Latino student achievement gap and secure a future where every student, regardless of zip code, is prepared to succeed and become an active contributor to our state’s viable and growing economy.
