• AASCU Presidents and Chancellors Talk About Opportunities for All


    At its core, AASCU’s national Opportunities for All initiative is designed around a unified brand for State Colleges and Universities (SCUs). The unifying theme, Opportunities for All, is grounded in the value proposition that America’s State Colleges and Universities offer the higher education choice that creates brighter futures for all. 

    These are challenging times for public higher education with eroding state support and uncertainty around federal funding going forward. Taking a collaborative, unified approach in articulating the benefits of SCUs and the value they bring to students and to our states is more vital than ever.  When many voices join together they are hard to ignore. 

    To help you better understand the value of Opportunities for All, we invite you to hear from 10 AASCU presidents and chancellors who have chosen to support this campaign.  They explain how the campaign aspires to deliver a unified brand that also augments and complements your individual school’s institutional messaging.
