Helping Arizona Western College Transform Lives and Create Thriving Communities
Shortly after Dr. Daniel Corr took the helm of Arizona Western College (AWC), the College partnered with CampusWorks to lead an inclusive, transparent strategic planning initiative that engaged 2,800 community members, including 200 students. While this process helped AWC clarify its mission — transforming lives through education and partnerships to create thriving communities — it soon became clear that the scarcity of specialized IT talent in rural Yuma, Arizona was a significant roadblock.
Determined to leverage technology to achieve the College’s mission, AWC expanded its partnership with CampusWorks to lead and transform IT. In this interview, Dr. Corr discusses the decision to move to managed services and the impact it has had on the institution.
