Dear Commons Community,
I am traveling today to Salt Lake City to evaluate Western Governors University(WGU) for the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education. WGU was founded by the governors of 19 U.S. states to expand access to higher education through online, competency-based degree programs. WGU presently enrolls more than 30,000 studens. WGU has made a proposal to offer sixteen teacher education degree programs to residents in the state of Massachusetts.
