Through the staff of the Center, governors and their policy advisors can quickly learn about what works, what doesn't, and what lessons can be learned from other governors grappling with the same problems; obtain assistance in designing and implementing new programs or in making current programs more effective; and receive up-to-date, comprehensive information about what is happening in other state capitals and in Washington, D.C., so governors are better prepared to react to emerging issues.

Northstar takes a conservative approach in the selection of individual securities, relying on proven evaluation techniques, ongoing monitoring of various markets and experience. The criteria they consider in choosing equity investments include strong sustained earnings growth, growing industry, dominant industry position, strong balance sheet and valuation relative to growth. Though not limited to any particular industry or market-cap, the firm tends to invest in US mid-cap companies in the energy minerals, consumer non-durables and health technology sectors.

Truly a university without boundaries, Western Governors University is a nonprofit online university founded and supported by 19 U.S. governors. At no other time in the history of higher education have the governors of several states joined together to create a university. The idea for WGU was born in 1995 at a bipartisan meeting of the Western Governors Association (hence our "western" name). Going into the meeting, the chair of the association—Utah governor Mike Leavitt—had the foresight to realize that distance learning technologies had the power to tackle one of the western states’ most pressing problems: rapid population growth confronted by limited public funds for educational services. The governors decided then and there to create their own university. They agreed that this new university would make maximum use of distance learning technologies, would be collaborative among the western member states, and would use competencies rather than seat time as the measure of its outcomes. Designing an Online University To do this, the governors enlisted the Western Interstate Commission on Higher Education (WICHE) and the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) to help design the newly envisioned university. Five themes remained central to the effort: Responsiveness to employment and societal needs. A focus on competency-based education. Expanding access. Cost-effectiveness. Development of a technology infrastructure. WGU was chartered in 1996, was incorporated as a private, nonprofit university in 1997, and began accepting students in 1999. An Online University with a Mission WGU is very mission driven. Created to expand access to higher education through online, competency-based degree programs, WGU’s mission has remained one of helping hardworking adults meet their educational goals and improve their career opportunities. To fulfill the mission, the founding governors also insisted that WGU be affordable, flexible, and student-focused. Hence, WGU strives to serve as many students as possible—including minorities, first-generation college students, those with modest incomes, and others whose lives or geographic locations do not allow them to attend traditional, campus-based colleges. WGU has flourished into a national university, serving more than 38,000 students from all 50 states, yet remains non-bureaucratic and innovative. It continues to receive praise for its academic model and to enhance its reputation with employers for the emphasis on graduating highly competent professionals. Additional Information The Myths about Online Learning Even though online learning is growing dramatically and becoming more and more accepted among employers and academia, there are still opinions—really, myths—about online education that linger in some people’s minds

RedLine was founded in 2008 by artist and philanthropist, Laura Merage as a way to support artists and build community in northeast Denver. Following the completion of a renovated space in Five Points, RedLine welcomed its first group of resident artists in the fall of 2008. The organization has grown rapidly over the last half decade, integrating youth education and community outreach with the artist residency and exhibitions. Over the past year, RedLine has welcomed more than 30,000 visitors and engaged more than 2,500 program participants as they continue to work toward a vision of empowering everyone to create positive change through art. RedLine Contemporary Art Center fosters education and engagement between artists and communities to create positive social change. Founded in 2008, RedLine was created in response to a lack of support for emerging artists and a dearth of creative opportunities for local residents. RedLine supports a thriving group of resident artists and provides programming that responds to the needs of the varied communities that live in the surrounding neighborhoods. RedLine was intentionally built in Five Points, a neighborhood that has experienced considerable population displacement over the last decade. Viewing art and arts education through a lens of social issues, the organization ensures equitable access to the arts for under-resourced populations by working to fulfill a vision of empowering everyone to create social change through art.
