Making it happen in our community
Chandler-Gilbert serves several diverse, fast-growing communities in the Southeast Valley, where we work to make a positive impact you can see, every day. Our educational programs and outreach initiatives add to our collective wellbeing and quality of life, as we continue to meet the needs of the students, businesses, and residents of our community.
Our innovative approach to education extends far beyond our classrooms and campuses. Our award-winning faculty and staff build upon our legacy by earning grants to develop programs and pioneering new initiatives to better our communities and the world. From the Arizona Mathematics Partnership, which supports middle school math teachers, to the Environmental Technology Center, our hub for sustainability-focused interdisciplinary experiential learning projects, our efforts make a positive impact in a wide variety of fields. Learn more about our recent initiatives below.
Chandler-Gilbert serves more than 19,000 students in the East Valley every year.
Our forward-reaching programs, including Dual Enrollment, Hoop of Learning, and Achieving a College Education (ACE), prepare pathways to college for high school and middle school students. For example, through the Basha Coding Academy, Dual Enrollment students gain valuable career training while earning college credit toward computer science degrees and certificates that prepare them for in-demand, high-paying coding careers. In partnership with the high schools we serve, we have embedded High School College Advisors onsite to help all students navigate these Early College programs, and assist seniors in making a successful transition into college.
Chandler-Gilbert students contribute more than 8,000 hours of learning-based service to the community every year.
Chandler-Gilbert is recognized as a leader in a community-based learning program called Service-Learning. It combines academic instruction with meaningful service, allowing students to reach their educational goals while making a contribution to their community. Service-Learning raises awareness, improves critical analysis and problem-solving skills, and broadens career possibilities, creating a positive impact for students and society at large.
