Your Vote 4 Stan Arterberry For College Board Is Your Vote For Student Success

Maricopa Community Colleges are among the most successful, productive and affordable post secondary educational institutions in the state of Arizona. The cost to attend Arizona State University is $702.00 per unit for a resident undergraduate student. The cost per unit for a county resident to attend one of the Maricopa Community Colleges is $86.00. I am asking for your VOTE to help me ensure that our Colleges maintain affordable tuition and will provide exceptional educational services.

I will support these Guiding Principles for Effective Trusteeship

  • Student Success
  • Respect for District Employees
  • Open, Honest and Ethical Communication
  • Innovation for Excellence
  • Academic Freedom for all Employees
  • Community Partnerships
  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • High Quality Facilities

As your Elected Board Member, I will work for our Students, our Citizens, the Business Community and the Employees of Maricopa Community Colleges. I will work with the Board to create a team that Ensures:

Student Success, Access and Affordability

I will work to ensure that Maricopa Community Colleges remain as accessible, affordable world class higher Educational Institutions focused on student success and the attainment of students’ personal, educational and workforce/career training goals. I will promote the “America College Promise” throughout the Maricopa Community Colleges.

Fiscal Stability and Responsibility

I will strongly encourage the State Legislature to ensure that Maricopa Community Colleges receive their fair share of state aid for taxpayer equity. I will also ensure that all District funds are well spent and directed towards our institutional goals for Student Success within a balanced budget.

Workforce Development

I will work to ensure that Maricopa Community Colleges remain the primary vehicle for workforce training for Maricopa County, for the state of Arizona and for the nation.

Fostering Community Partnerships

I will work with State/City Governments, Business Community, Education Community, Civic and Social Organizations to expand Maricopa Community Colleges Community partnership.

I am asking for your VOTE to help me ensure that our Colleges maintain affordable tuition, transparency and exceptional educational services focused on student success for ALL students.
