Think Tank discusses 4-year degrees at Arizona community colleges
Jun 11, 2021, 10:20 AM | Updated: 10:21 am
The Arizona State Legislature voted to authorize the issuance of four-year degrees by the state’s community colleges for the first time.
This change has been sought by the community colleges and successfully opposed by the state’s universities for decades.
We explore the implications of this decision with:
● Linda Thor, member of the Maricopa Community Colleges Governing Board and former community college president at three institutions inside and outside of the Maricopa system.
● Ernest Calderon, former chairman of the Arizona Board of Regents.
We discuss the implications of this change:
What types of degrees and programs are likely to be offered? When are they likely to be available? What kinds of costs are likely to be involved?
The Think Tank airs on KTAR 92.3 FM on Saturdays 6-7 p.m. and Sundays 9-10 p.m.
Podcasts are available after broadcast.
