State Policy Agenda

The State Policy Agenda is designed for state leaders as a guidepost to increase higher education attainment and reach Goal 2025 – to increase the proportion of Americans with high quality degrees, certificates, and other credentials to 60% by the year 2025.  It includes three core elements.  Under each are a set of specific evidence-based policy recommendations.
