New website launched to reach stop-outs
Monday, October 8, 2012
John Brown University has joined four other northwest Arkansas higher education institutions, the Northwest Arkansas Council, and the five major NWA Chambers of Commerce to launch Graduate NWA, a website designed to reach out to adults in the area who have earned college hours but never completed a degree.
According to research, over one-fifth of the population in northwest Arkansas qualify as stop-outs - those who have some college, but no degree. The aim of this project is to provide a clearinghouse for those individuals to research degree options on a website that's targeted to adult students. A marketing campaign to support the website will launch soon.
