Throughout the pandemic in Arizona, we’ve heard a lot from our three public universities — whether it be through their research on the virus, data tracking and public health efforts, or testing and vaccination sites.

Now, the Arizona Board of Regents is focusing on what’s next.

They’ve created the New Economy Initiative to help drive the state forward economically and educationally.

The Show spoke more about the targeted approach they’ve taken with Larry Penley, chair of the Arizona Board of Regents.
