Rio Salado College, known for its strong online learning program, has been named one of eight highly productive institutions of higher education in the nation by McKinsey & Company, a nationally known management consulting firm. In its new report it states Rio Salado as the community college with the largest online enrollments in the nation. The report praised Rio Salado's practice of leveraging technology to become more cost-effective by substituting full-time with part-time faculty, the attitude of Rio Salado administrators, who encourage innovation, and a decision made by the State of Arizona when Rio Salado was created that allowed the college to operate across the state, serving students across many communities.
