Upcoming survey for CEOs for Cities

Recently, Lumina Foundation released a new strategic plan for the next several years in order to reach the 2025 goal of 60% higher education attainment in the US.

The core focus of their approach is place-based strategies like the metro strategies for college completion that many of you are working toward building. An executive summary of the plan can be found here. (Link opens in a PDF.)
Lumina will work to establish metropolitan regional partnerships across business and higher education sectors, in collaboration with political leadership, K-12 education, youth-serving organizations, local foundations and funders, college access networks, and faith-based and other community organizations.
HigherEd Insight is conducting a survey as part of an evaluation of Lumina Foundation's Adult College Completion Initiative, which provides funding to CEOs for Cities' Talent Dividend Network. The purpose of the survey is to identify lessons learned about metro/citywide efforts to increase postsecondary completion rates. Your participation in this brief survey will be tremendously valuable to the Foundation in learning about the different metro-based approaches. Please look out for an email with the survey link on February 28.
