17 Our Current System Will Not Meet the Growing Demand for Workers with Postsecondary Education and Training 17 “ Help Wanted: Projections of Jobs and Education Requirements Through 2018, ” Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce. Anthony Carnevale, Nicole Smith, Jeff Strohl.June 2010.

18 Among the 20 most populous states, California ranks 19th in the percentage of high school graduates who enroll directly in a four-year college or university; 18th in the percentage who enroll in any college, including community colleges Educating California: Choices for the Future, Public Policy Institute of California, Hans Johnson, June 2009. 18

19 “ (In California) By 2025, Demand for College- Educated Workers Will Outstrip the Supply ” California 2025: Planning for a Better Future. Public Policy Institute of California.

20 California Degree Needs 20 Since 2000, California has lost slightly more college graduates to other states than it has gained. Highly skilled workers attracted from other countries are not enough to meet the need. Annually public institutions award 110,000 bachelor’s degrees and private institutions award 40,000. To meet the projected demand by 2025, we must increase the number of degrees by almost 60,000 per year—about 40% above current levels. California 2025: Planning for a Better Future.

21 The Need for Applied Baccalaureate Degrees 21 Careers in public service, law enforcement, and the technologies now often require no less than the baccalaureate. Health profession jobs that once required no more than LPN or RN now demand the BSN in addition to state licensure. Deborah L. Floyd & Kenneth P. Walker (2008).The Community College Baccalaureate: Putting the Pieces Together. Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 33:2, 90-124. ht p://

35 Study Group Discussion Points Values and Principles Opportunities and Challenges Questions to Be Considered 35

36 Values and Principles AA degrees are to remain the primary mission Address critical workforce needs Strategic and targeted Designed to meet student needs Colleges should be allowed to opt in and not be forced to do baccalaureate programs Avoid unnecessary duplication of services as much as possible Continue high quality programs Comparable to a degree at a 4-year college 36

37 OpportunitiesChallenges Serves underserved areas and populations Responds to workforce needs Benefits the state economy Part of a national trend Removes barriers for completion Compensates for lack of university capacity in some fields Need for additional funding Capacity issues (physical and programmatic) Mission creep Faculty hiring issues – possible collective bargaining complications Legislation needed 37

38 Should this be part of a total reassessment of the Master Plan for Higher Education? What statewide or regional needs should be addressed first? How/why are CSU, UC, and others unable to fill the need? How should the Baccalaureate Degrees be funded? Differential tuition? State aid? Local budget discretion? Other? Questions to Be Considered and Discussions to Be Had 38

39 What Happens Now? 39 Study group report released Chancellor’s Office has begun consultative process The Legislation has been introduced Advocacy is underway
