Statement in Response to Arizona State Board of Private Postsecondary Education Decision

The Arizona Board of Private Postsecondary Education recently decided to decline Woz U’s state license for renewal. We plan to appeal that decision. While our unique and transforming Education-as-a-Service (EaaS) business model does not rely on having a Arizona postsecondary license, we do not agree with the reasons the Board cited in their decision not to renew. By focusing on a perceived ownership issue separate from Woz U’s business operations, the Board overlooked our many accomplishments in advancing the careers of individuals to meet the ever-growing employment demands of Arizona’s technology industry.

Since we launched 18 months ago, Woz U’s mission has been to provide affordable tech solutions to help fill the growing skills gap the world faces today. Digital cooperatives are disrupting the traditional model of brick-and-mortar educational systems. As a truly home-grown, Arizona-based EdTech startup, we will continue to lead that disruption.

Through strategic partnerships, our EaaS business model empowers us to scale and impact a greater number of future innovators.  Our services allow academic institutions and businesses to leverage our proprietary ecosystem to tailor content for their specific business objectives.

We at Woz U recognized that the traditional method of educating individuals in tech-based careers needed to change, and we believe systems like ours are the catalyst to that change. We can rapidly train, cultivate, and upgrade tech talent to meet the workforce needs of Arizona for years to come. We will continue to adhere to high education and business standards.
