Northern Arizona Community Colleges Partner to Better Serve Students – The Arizona Republic | Team Cansler

The four community colleges, serving all of northern Arizona, are in the early stages of a historic partnership aimed at combining resources to better serve their students and communities.

Mohave Community College President Stacy Klippenstein estimates that his school currently serves about 20,000 students in four counties, alongside Northland Pioneer College, Coconino Community College and Yavapai College.

Additionally, these schools often face the same challenges when it comes to meeting the needs of their students, faculty and staff, including size, higher cost of living and reliable broadband access. This collaboration, university leaders said, is one way to address these challenges.

“The Northern Arizona Community College Partnership is a way for us to add value to our communities without increasing costs,” said CCC Provost Nate Sutherland.
