Unitek to Join a Coalition of More Than 125 Pioneering Organizations for the Future of Arizona
Postsecondary education has the power to shape the future of healthcare. Unitek Learning championed this cause for several decades. Their commitment has now been recognized by the Achieve60AZ Alliance. More than 125 community, business, government, and education organizations have joined over 40 local governments to form this alliance. They are fueled by a community-based effort to make Arizona thrive through education. By entering this alliance, Unitek Learning has demonstrated their commitment to future generations.
“Unitek Learning has been in the business of helping students, working professionals, and organizations achieve their goals for more than 25 years,” said Karilyn Van Oosten, VP of Strategic Business Development at Unitek Learning. “We are looking to partner with institutions like Achieve60AZ in order to support students in the communities we serve.”
The mission of Achieve60AZ is ambitious but attainable: By 2030, 60% of Arizona adults between the ages of 25-64 will hold a postsecondary credential or degree. The Achieve60AZ Alliance aims to advance postsecondary attainment by acting as a statewide catalyst to increase public support, build awareness on key strategies that improve attainment, provide informed data and reporting to maintain momentum, and empower decision makers on strategies to achieve their goal.
“Postsecondary education can take many forms, from earning a certificate or license to earning a degree,” said Rachel Yanof, Executive Director at Achieve60AZ. “We can see a future where Arizona has a diverse, well-educated, highly skilled workforce participating in a prosperous economy, and we look forward to working with Unitek Learning to make that come true.”
By accepting this invitation, Unitek Learning has identified themselves as one of Arizona’s most dedicated academic institutions. Their triumphs, stories, and upcoming events will be featured in monthly newsletters from Achieve60AZ. In addition, Unitek Learning attended a recent and prestigious event for the Higher Education State of Attainment.
“At Unitek, we are committed to education and workforce alignment so that the next generation can thrive,” said Janis Paulson, Chief Executive Officer at Unitek Learning. “We’re honored to join the Achieve60AZ Alliance and help transform the future of Arizona. As a learning institution, we focus on the principles of effective communication, moral commitment to self and others, and our capacity to increase the quality of teaching overall.”
