CARLSBAD, CA, March 17, 2022 – ROAM Advisors, LLC (ROAM) today announced a new partnership with Western Governors University (WGU) to offer enhanced education opportunities for its employees. WGU is the perfect fit for working adults who need a degree to boost their careers but can’t fit traditional schooling into their busy lives. That’s why ROAM has joined the hundreds of companies, associations, school districts, municipalities, and other organizations who have chosen WGU as their partner in educating their workforce.
The addition of WGU, a leader recognized as the most student-centric university in the world affords ROAM employees a unique opportunity to pursue career and education goals. The story of WGU is centered on its students and ROAM, on its employees. We are directly invested in their struggles, their lives, and thier successes.
Too many people have felt that education was out of their reach. Distance, cost, and life situations led them to believe that education was unattainable. From WGU’s inception they have taken these barriers to education head-on so their students have access to the surest way to change their lives for the better—a degree. For ROAM, this was a perfect match.
Although WGU has grown and its focus has widened, their single commitment to its students has not. Its ambition to help individuals bridge the gap from talent to opportunity will never rest. At ROAM, we believe our employees are our most valuable resource and we firmly believe in their growth and continued professional development.
