Jobs for Arizona Graduates adds University of Phoenix faculty member to board

The addition of a faculty member of the University of Phoenix to the board of Jobs for Arizona Graduates is expected to strengthen the partnership between the two organizations.
Hinrich Eylers, executive dean of the university’s School of Advanced Studies, joined the organization’s board Dec. 20, according to a news release. The two entities work together to encourage students to finish high school and explore career and college opportunities. The university’s Leads Program allows faculty and staff to mentor select students from area high schools.
“Throughout its three decades of operation, JAG has helped thousands of young people stay focused on their education,” Eylers said in the news release. “Ensuring the success of those pursuing their educational goals is a worthwhile effort, and I look forward to working with Jobs for Arizona’s Graduates.”
Eylers earned a physics degree from Technische Universität Munchen in Germany, an MBA from DeVry University’s Keller School of Management, and a master’s and Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology.
“Dr. Eylers’ unwavering commitment to the students at University of Phoenix and in the Arizona community overall makes him an ideal board member,” Graciela Candia, president of Jobs for Arizona’s Graduates, said. “His energy, expertise and experience will be a valuable asset to our organization and the students we serve.”
Jobs for Arizona Graduates operates more than two dozen programs serving 1,200 students across the state. More information is available at
