Western Governors Changing Higher Education Model

Over the past decade, Western Governors University (WGU) has grown at a pace faster than nearly any other postsecondary institution. Indeed, in recent years, many of WGU programs have reported over 30% growth annually. In many respects, WGU’s growth is not a surprise. As an online institution, WGU attracts students in all 50 states, though its biggest markets are still in California, Texas, Washington, and Utah. If WGU has yet to reach into some of the nation’s other large markets, including New York State, it has much to do with the university’s accreditation status.
