Maricopa Community Colleges

Rose Rojas, Interim Director of Workforce Strategies at the Maricopa Community Colleges (Arizona), develops innovative solutions and pathways to increase student access to college and success in the workforce. In her prior role as Director of the Center for Curriculum and Transfer Articulation, she established Maricopa as a leader in student transfer by creating a university partnership model adapted by community colleges across the country. She serves on several higher education advisory boards and co-authored a chapter for the recently published book, The Transfer Experience: A Handbook for Creating a More Equitable and Successful Postsecondary System (Gardner, Rosenberg and Koch).

The Education Design Lab’s Designers in Residence program is an 11-month opportunity for leaders to collaborate with the Lab in co-creating the future role of colleges in their communities.

The 2021 cohort will bring together a design team of 12 visionary thinkers and doers from postsecondary institutions to evolve and strengthen the role of colleges to be regional change agents to close economic and racial opportunity gaps.
