About

AARP Texas hosted this Access Live event to speak to members about higher education. This event featured Dr. Robert Garza, President at Palo Alto College; Dr. Suzanne Morales-Vale, Ph.D., Senior Director at the Higher Education Coordinating Board; and Gloria Smith, Associate Vice Chancellor at Dallas College. The hosts discussed the importance of providing higher education for adult learners, military veterans, and their families. Callers were concerned with the lack of high-skilled workers available today due to lack of educational opportunities. Participants also asked questions regarding various higher education opportunities and the ability to go back to school as an adult learner.
