University of ArizonaLast November during his 2013 State of the City Address, Mayor Christian Price guided the audience through Maricopa's 10 year history and shared a vision for the community's future. One key aspect of this vision is laying the foundation for sustainable economic success by pursuing higher education institutions and talent. He specifically noted how attracting an engineering school to Maricopa could become the catalyst for landing high tech companies with high paying job opportunities.

In September, a conference call was held between representatives from the University of Arizona, City of Maricopa Economic Development Department and Maricopa Unified School District (MUSD). The discussion focused on the establishment of a viable partnership between the City and MUSD to support engineering degrees through the University of Arizona College of Engineering. The long-term goal of the initiative is to create a pipeline of Maricopa High School (MHS) students to the University of Arizona. "There is a projected future shortage of scientists and engineers throughout the Greater Phoenix region and United States," said Mayor Christian Price. "We believe Maricopa has the potential to fill a critical niche by developing talent locally. Through this partnership, we hope to generate excitement among Maricopa students and provide them with an academic track to pursue careers in high demand, technology-driven fields."
