Working to increase the percent of Minnesotans age 25 to 44 who have attained a postsecondary certificate or degree to 70 percent by 2025
The 2015 Minnesota Legislature enacted legislation setting a target that 70 percent of Minnesota adults age 25 to 44 will have attained a postsecondary certificate or degree by 2025. Before that data could be measured, Minnesota needed to determine the current percent of the population age 25 to 44 with a certificate or higher by race and ethnicity.
The Minnesota Office of Higher Education created a persistence model demonstrating how Minnesota's 70 percent educational attainment goal can be attained. Learn more.
The Minnesota Office of Higher Education has created a working group of state leaders to address these ongoing inequities. For more information contact:
