Gary Brahm, Chancellor of Brandman University, speaks with WorkingNation at ASU GSV Summit 2019 about mentoring and coaching adults who return to school.

Gary became the founding chancellor of Brandman University in 2007, after 14 years as executive vice president and chief operating office at Chapman University. As a pioneer in CBE for the past four years, Brandman was the fourth institution in the nation that was approved to award direct assessment financial aid. 

Most recently, Brandman partnered with another innovator – Guild Education – to offer free or almost free degrees to Walmart, Discover Financial Services, the Walt Disney Company and other Fortune 1000 companies. This builds upon a long tradition of serving working adults through partnering with employers in corporate, government, and education sectors.

The ASU GSV Summit brought together the nation’s most committed leaders in business, education, nonprofits, government, and entertainment for the three-day conference. A collaboration between Arizona State University and Global Silicon Valley (GSV), the annual conference is the industry catalyst for elevating dialogue and driving action around raising learning and career outcomes through scaled innovation. 

WorkingNation set up its cameras at the Summit and interviewed the speakers and attendees about the important issues of education and workforce challenges. You can follow the conversation on our social media under the hashtag #WorkingNationOverheard.
