Representatives from Arizona State University insist that the school’s new partnership with Starbucks was not struck to make up for budget cuts from the state legislature. Starbucks named ASU its exclusive partner in a new initiative in which the coffee giant will pay the entire cost of tuition for junior and senior years of online education with the university. Starbucks employees who work 20 hours or more a week are eligible. ASU Foundation Chief Executive Officer Rick Shangraw Jr. acknowledged the deal would raise revenue for the school, but it is not meant to compensate for state funding cuts.
