There's no one-size-fits-all solution to education. Each student is different in their motivations, life situation, work style, and pace. Additionally, each state has unique workforce needs, differing levels of accessibility to online courses, and other unique challenges. At WGU, we understand these differences and offer a flexible, reputable, and affordable education to fit specific needs.
How do we do it? In short, WGU supports the localized needs of states, businesses, and communities by partnering with state and regional affiliates to provide educational pathways. Each area of the country has different educational needs, and we currently partner with many local leaders to provide solutions to address those needs. We focus on topics like workforce enablement, expanding access, and improving college readiness. WGU currently has affiliates in nine states and counting with staff dedicated to these specific states.
