Innovations support access to quality education

September 1, 2010

MacMurray College has planned a number of new initiatives to support student access and affordability in these challenging economic times. By minimizing both financial and admissions barriers to students and their families, these latest efforts build on other recent initiatives by the College to help students more easily complete a quality, private undergraduate education.

“Education is a critical issue for America,” said College President Colleen Hester, echoing President Obama’s attention to improving college graduation rates in the country and thereby protecting America’s stature in the world economy. “A well-educated workforce in the 21st century and American global competitiveness now demand more than the high school education that prepared earlier generations for a career and family support. MacMurray College is committed to providing a high quality, affordable, private college education. Our children, our grandchildren, and our communities deserve nothing less.”
