A Look at College Completion Rates

Building an education system that allows all students to earn a degree or career credential with labor market value is the foundational goal of the Road Map Project. We know our region’s economy increasingly demands it, and 97% of parents in the Road Map Project region feel it is important for their child to go to college. Yet postsecondary completion rates have remained relatively flat, as the graph below shows. We must be steadfast in our commitment to changing the trajectory for students in our region, and make bold and innovative changes to improve our current systems.
