Mission & vision
The Yuma Educational Success (YES) exists because we believe a quality post-secondary education is the single-most effective strategy to ensure Arizona communities are prepared to meet the economic demands and social challenges of our time. A post-secondary education serves as the foundation for greater individual and collective prosperity, ensuring a more highly educated workforce is available to attract and fill higher paying, and economically diverse jobs and create greater stability, growth, and innovation.
Ensuring access to comprehensive academic, social, and financial support systems for attaining a baccalaureate degree is our most important challenge and commitment.
Empowering Yuma students to achieve bachelor’s degrees through individualized support, resources, and enhanced experiences in all areas of their educational journey.
Preparing Yuma graduates to meet the growing demands of the regional job market for a thriving and well-educated community.
