11 WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO CLOSE THE GAP? Slide 11

12 Closing the Gap – Number of Degrees Required Beyond Current Production Slide 12

13 Educational Attainment (Percent) Slide 13 Current, in 2025 with current degree production, and best-performing countries in 2025

14 Reaching Top Performance by 2025 (55%) – United States 94,510,473 31,382,831 63,127,642 40,605,747 7,045,932 15,626, , % Number of Individuals to Match Best-Performing Countries (55%) Number of Individuals (Age 25-44) Who Already Have Degrees Additional Degree Production Needed (2005 to 2025) Degrees Produced at Current Annual Rate of Production Additional Residents with College Degrees from Net Migration Additional Degrees Needed Additional Degrees Needed per Year (Currently Produce 2,135,924 in All Sectors) Increase in Annual Associate and Bachelor’s Degree Production Needed (in Public Sector Only) Slide 14

15 How Can the U.S. Reach International Competitiveness? Current Degree Production Combined with Population Growth and Migration and Improved Performance on the Student Pipeline Measures Pipeline Performance Is Cumulative Degrees Produced with Current Rate of Production Additional Degrees from Population Growth Additional Degrees from Net Migration of College-Educated Residents Reaching Best Performance in High School Graduation Rates by 2025 Reaching Best Performance in College-Going Rates by 2025 Reaching Best Performance in Rates of Degree Production per FTE Student Total Degrees Produced If All of the Above Degrees Needed to Meet Best Performance (55%) Source: 2005 ACS, PUMS Slide 15

16 The “Gap” - Difference in Annual Degrees Currently Produced and Annual Degrees Needed to Meet Benchmark Source:U.S. Census Bureau, PUMS and Population Projections, IPEDS Completions Survey Accounting for Migration U.S. = 781,301 (a 52.8% increase in the public sector) 131,749 94, ,533 North Dakota Nebraska Iowa Rhode Island Utah New York Colorado Massachusetts Slide 16

17 In order to reach international competitiveness by 2025, the U.S. and 32 states can’t close the gap with even best performance with traditional college students. They must rely on the re-entry pipeline – getting older adults back into the education system and on track to attaining college degrees. Even Best Performance with Traditional College-Aged Students at Each Stage of the Educational Pipeline Will Leave Gaps in More than 30 States Slide 17
