"[Dual Mission] institutions create pathways from certificates to two year programs to four year programs and make it easy for students to kind of come off the highway and go to work. But then to come back on and to do it in a very seamless way so... you are building on what you've already completed."
Utah State Senator Ann Millner is intensely focused on improving Utah through education and workforce development. She is a Regents Professor of Health Administration and former President at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. A proponent of flexible certifications and pathways in higher education, Senator Millner shares more about what Dual Mission Institutions are, and why they are necessary for today’s students – those working adults who want to move up the ladder and those emerging adults seeking to find their career paths and passions.
Senator Millner earned degrees from University of Tennessee, Vanderbilt University, Texas State University, and a doctorate in education from Brigham Young University.
