Expanding its outreach recruitment and market research; opening information office and visitors center in Prescott Valley
In a newsletter sent to the public and received May 11 by the Blog, NAU stated that it was expanding its outreach and market research in the Yavapai County. It also stated that it was opening an Information Office and Visitors’ Center across from Harkins’ Theatres in Prescott Valley.
The newsletter added that NAU “values our partnership with Yavapai College. We are excited about continuing this relationship and look forward to expanding the opportunities in Prescott Valley and Yavapai County. By working together, we can maximize our relationships to help move Prescott Valley and the State of Arizona forward in this new age of opportunity.”
Recall that a day before this NAU announcement, Wills’ indicated at the District Governing Board meeting she was not sure of the direction NAU was taking. Umm?
More of the mystery of the future relationship between Yavapai College and NAU to be uncovered. What is the impact of NAU and Yavapai College competing for the same students? Why did NAU become more aggressive in Yavapai County in its recruitment efforts? Especially in Prescott Valley? Have the Prescott Valley politicos sold both NAU and Yavapai County a political bill of goods in re developing economic engines there? Time will tell.
Below is the news release from NAU.
