RISE to 55
Toolkit made possible by: CareerSource Florida, Helios Education Foundation and Lumina Foundation
America faces an urgent and growing need for talent, specifically among adults 25 to 64 with postsecondary degrees or credentials qualified to fill high-wage, high-skill job openings anticipated by 2025. The Higher Education Coordinating Council (HECC) understands the most powerful indicator of economic development and healthy communities is educational attainment and is committed to ensuring Florida has the talent needed to meet the growing economy and population. On November 28, 2016, the council approved a motion to establish a statewide attainment goal of 55 percent to be reached by the year 2025. Find out more.
