Increasing High Quality Education Degrees - Lumina Conference



As part of their "Big Goal" to increase the proportion of Americans with high-quality degrees and credentials to 60% by the year 2025, Lumina Foundation has convened state legislators, policy makers, higher education leadership and representatives from 18 states in Indianapolis this week.  

This is important work, being done well.  Too many talk too much about the importance of education.  These folks are actually working on it.

Concluding today, speakers have included David Leonhardt, Washington Bureau Chief & Pulitzer Prize winner of the New York Times, Andy Goodman of The Goodman Center, Will Friedman, President of Public Agenda, and Bill Powers, President of the University of Texas at Austin.

Lois Ann Porter, a VisionLink Vice President and Director of Strategic Advantage has worked with HCM Strategists to construct and carry out the planning, tools, training and agenda for the conference.  Excellent work all!
