We are thrilled to announce a strategic alliance between Raving and the University of Phoenix. How does this relationship benefit Raving clients and conference attendees?

Attendees of the 2020 and previous Raving NEXT: Indian Gaming Analytics and Marketing Conferences can earn college elective credits through the University of Phoenix. That’s right, whether you are a current University of Phoenix student or planning to enroll, this conference has been approved for college credits. It’s as simple as emailing us to get the ball rolling. If you attended our conference last month, or in a previous year, get college credit for the time you spent with us! Are you attending another Raving conference? Contact us today to see if it qualifies for college credit.

Raving’s Player Development 360 Training Program is also eligible for college credits. Have you already completed this program? Are you considering installing a PD360 program at your casino? Provide your team members not only with the most sought after PD training in the industry but help them get closer to their college degree. More Raving training programs will be eligible for UOPX college credit; check-in with us to see which ones have been approved.

When you work with Raving on a custom Leadership and Tribal Member Development Program, you now have access to Patrick Horning, Senior Manager, National Tribal Relations, University of Phoenix! As an addition to our highly-skilled team, Patrick provides Raving a resource in two different ways. First, he helps Tribal organizations address future staffing needs and up-skill requirements within their own employee base. He’ll be available at our conferences, contributing articles and be a resource to all Raving clients. Second, he and his team provide one-on-one service to all affiliated Tribal members, employees, and their family members who are considering a career in Indian Gaming, a departmental change, or have a desire to enhance in their current field through career relevant education.

“We’ve enjoyed working with this dedicated team whose goal is helping Tribes achieve sustainability through higher education, economic development and developing future leaders,” said Deana Scott, Raving CEO. “Our work with University of Phoenix is in alignment with Raving’s mission to educate and provide tools to the industry as they become better operators, leaders and community members.”

“Many folks out there, who are currently working in the Tribal gaming industry or are Tribal members, want to achieve higher education goals but achieving this might seem impossible due to work/life challenges, location or other factors,” Horning said. “Pursuing a degree can be overwhelming for financial and other reasons. Our team works with students to not only explore opportunities for prior work/life experience and trainings that may be evaluated for potential college credit, but also to help them through the enrollment and funding processes, as well as navigating challenges they might experience throughout their program.”

In today’s competitive job market, how is your organization building bench strength and providing a strategic learning pathway for future leaders? As someone working in the Tribal gaming industry, is attaining higher education or training part of your career plan?
