3 Declining State Support for Higher Education The downturn of the US economy has resulted in large budget cuts to public community colleges One-Year Percent Changes in State Fiscal Support for Higher Education (FY2011 – FY2012) Illinois State University for the Study of Education Policy Grapevine Fiscal Year Data – Updated March 15, Table 2 -One-Year (FY11-FY12), Two-Year (FY10- FY12), and Five-Year (FY07-FY12) Percent Changes in State Fiscal Support for Higher Education, by State and by Source of Fiscal Support

5 President Obama’s 2020 Goal Goal 10 million more graduates from community colleges, four-year colleges and universities by 2020 (beyond 2+ million expected due to growth) Goal Every American completes one year or more of higher education or advanced training in his/her lifetime Result “Best educated, most competitive workforce in the world”

6 Higher Education is Imperative Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce Help Wanted (2010), p. 14

7 Completion Initiative Workshop Performance funding (PF) is gaining traction as an effective model for prodding institutions to be more effective and efficient Performance funding is a method of funding public institutions based on outcomes such as retention, job placement, and degree/certificate completion Completion has emerged as the primary performance indicator among many 2-year colleges

8 Completion Initiative Workshop President Obama has focused his attention on the "college completion" agenda College Scorecard

9 College Scorecard

10 The US has Fallen Behind Globally Percentage of Adults Age with Postsecondary Education (Associate Degree or Higher in US per 2008 Population Survey, US Census Bureau) OECD Education at a Glance 2011 Indicator A1: To what level have adults studied? Table A1.3a Population with tertiary education (2009)

11 Completion Initiative Workshop By 2018 there will be a shortage of 3 million workers who have associate degrees or higher This shortfall will mean lost economic opportunity for millions of American workers

13 Completion Initiative Workshop College completion is essential to the nation’s ability to compete in the new millennium

14 The Completion Arch

15 Completion Initiative Workshop NGA (2010). Complete to Compete, Common College Completion Metrics. Washington, D.C.: NGA Center for Best Practices. The National Governors Association (NGA) launched an initiative to help all states improve performance

16 Outcome Metrics The outcome metrics quantify the end-product of the educational process, informing policymakers and the public on how students, institutions, and the state are performing on the goal of increased postsecondary attainment.

17 NGA College Completion Metrics NGA (2010). Complete to Compete, Common College Completion Metrics. Washington, D.C.: NGA Center for Best Practices.

18 Progress Metrics Progress metrics measure student movement from semester-to-semester and year-to-year toward the completion of an academic program. Such measures help policymakers identify specific challenges and opportunities for improvement in higher education. The measures also enable institutions to target intervention and support services to increase the likelihood of completion.

20 Context Metrics to Consider NGA proposes additional context measures to help states analyze and apply the outcome and progress metrics, providing governors and other state leaders with more information on which to base policy decisions.

21 Context Metrics to Consider Enrollment Completion ratio Market penetration

22 Recommendations 1.Formation of a state-wide data metrics team to work with the DE and ISU in refining the definitions, methodologies, and reporting of outcomes. 2.Regular monitoring of performance on the metrics. 3.Development of strategies to improve performance on the metrics. 4.Sharing of initiatives that result in improved performance on the metrics. 5.Develop a communications plan to disseminate positive outcomes.
