|PURPOSE||WORK GROUP||UPCOMING MEETINGS||RESOURCES|
A key component of economic development in our state is an educated workforce prepared to meet the needs of employers through appropriate knowledge and skills. Changing the educational attainment rate of Arkansans begins with communicating the value of higher education. We must better communicate the value of higher education, demonstrating the impact degree attainment can have on the lives of Arkansans, to those who failed to complete a certificate or degree or never attended a college or university and to engrain in our young people the importance of education for all Arkansans.
Master Plan Goals Relevant to Communication Strategies:
GOAL 2: Increase by 50% the enrollment of adults, age 25 to 54, by fall 2018.
GOAL 3: Raise the credential attainment rates of underserved student groups in the state relative to other students by 10%..
The represententatives below will be responsible for planning and presenting implementation strategies for the Communication Strategies section of the master plan. If you have ideas or information to contribute, feel free to contact one of the members below.
