The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), Arizona State University (ASU), and Arizona Commerce Authority are strongly disputing a March 2016 news report that shows Arizona at the bottom of the list when it comes to retaining college graduates. In an article published in The Atlantic CityLab, author Richard Florida indicates that Arizona is among the worst states for two- and four-year college student retention, at only 36.3 percent. However, MAG findings show a much different and extremely more positive picture, with retention rates for Arizona State University closer to 70 percent and for the University, about 56 percent.

In an effort to make information delivery faster, MAG has implemented an e-mail notification system that will make it easier to receive documents such as agendas, minutes and reports. Through a free subscription service called GovDelivery, MAG member agencies and the public will have better access to information that is posted on the MAG Web site.
The subscription service monitors specific Web pages for changes, and when a change is detected, the service sends an e-mail to subscribers notifying them of the change. Users can choose to subscribe to as many of the pages as they wish. There are about 130 monitored pages on the MAG Web site.
As a subscriber, you can choose not only what information you receive, you can also choose how often you receive it—immediately, daily, or weekly.
To subscribe, simply click on the link on the page that says “Sign up to receive email updates.” Users can also click on a Quick Subscribe link on various pages to see a full list and subscribe to any of the MAG pages. To subscribe, only a few pieces of information will be required, such as e-mail address, delivery preferences and organization.
