Starbucks funds college education for employees

Starbucks has announced that it will heavily fund the tuition costs for its employees who enroll in an undergraduate program at Arizona State University. 

"the company had considered other institutions but kept coming back to Arizona State because of its academic reputation and its ability to serve students on a large scale with its own faculty members."

Arizona State has begun implementing what it calls the "New American University" model that attempts to provide equal access to education to an increasing number of students using innovative methods.

More information is available at the Starbucks College Achievement Plan web page, and more information about the "New American University" model is available at the ASU web site
