  13. 13. MSIs and college completion goals• One the most pressing issues in our nation today is the educational attainment of its citizens.• Achievement gap between students of color and their White counterparts persists and continues to grow.• College completion: 60% Americans will hold a 2 or 4 year college degree or credential. • Obama’s 2020 goal • Lumina Foundation’s 2025 goal• Accomplishing the goals: • Accounting for current enrollment rates, the U.S. will produce an additional 112,000 graduates in each of the next fifteen years- leaving an annual degree “gap” of 166,000. • In total the nation will require an annual increase of roughly 278,000 graduates over each of the next fifteen years to hit the 60% mark.• A way to close the equity gap is to focus on under- served populations, such as students of color, who are the fastest growing demographic groups in the nation.
  14. 14. Human Capital Needs• By 2020, there will be 14 million more skilled jobs (requiring at least some college) in the U.S. than people qualified to fill them• 40 percent of those available to take these jobs will be minorities• Top 5 fastest growing jobs in the next decade all require postsecondary education• Of the 50 highest paying occupations nationally, 49 require a college degree

The Record of Success• Teachers—MSIs award nearly 50% of teacher education degrees and certificates to students of color; significant producers of degrees in engineering, science and mathematics, nursing, and other critical areas• STEM—Have made significant contributions with minority students in the STEM fields. HBCU community awards half of all degrees held by African Americans in mathematics, and 40% of all African Americans who earn doctorates in physics.• Transfer— Encouraging students to continue their education through transfer is perhaps MSIs most significant contribution. 56% of two year tribal college graduates go on to attend four-year institutions. Working with state systems to make clearer pathways for 21st century students.
