Higher Education Master Plan

The Colorado Commission on Higher Education recently released Colorado Competes:  A Completion Agenda for Higher Education, a master plan for higher education that addresses retention, success, educational services, and on-time degree attainment.  “The primary goal established by this Master Plan,” the report states, “is to increase the number of Coloradans ages 25-34 who hold postsecondary credentials…to 66 percent by 2025.”  (Currently, the number is 46 percent).  The report, mandated by SB10-003, is the second Master Plan produced by the Commission in response to the Senate Bill — Colorado Competes follows The Degree Dividend from 2010.  Together, these documents highlight the state’s higher education goals and their importance to Colorado’s future.
