Indiana Commission for Higher Education - PowerPoint by benbenzhou


									                About the Commission
•   The Commission for Higher Education
    works at the junction of K-12 and
    Workforce Development.
•   14-member board appointed by the
    Governor—charged with defining
    missions, strategic planning, academic
    and capital oversight
•   Takes a system-level approach to
    improving higher education in Indiana
         Increasing global competition
•   U.S. is 10th among industrialized nations in college completion
    rates, down from first.
•   US ranks 18th of 36 industrialized nations in high school
•   Indiana ranks 41st in the nation in the proportion of adults with
    postsecondary credential (30%).
•   Indiana ranks 32nd in the nation in the average personal income of
    its residents – this is a 35 year low against the national average.
•   14 Million Baby-Boomers will retire in the next decade.
       A state economy in transition

• Indiana’s economy depends highly on
  manufacturing, an industry that is rapidly
  – Since 2000, Indiana manufacturing jobs have declined
    by 35%.
• 75% of the highest-growth, highest-pay jobs
  over the next decade will require post-secondary

                    The New Paradigm
•   Changing demographics
     – Colleges need to educate new and different populations,
       including first-time college students, part-time students, adults
       and minorities—the “New Majority”
         • In the next decade, the Hispanic working-age population will
           increase by 83%, African Americans by 23%, and white working
           age population will decline by 3%.
•   Greater efficiency, production
     – Colleges must be more efficient while maintaining quality
                          The New Paradigm
•   New expectations
     – Everyone needs a postsecondary credential
     – Indiana needs at least 10,000 more bachelor’s degrees every year
       and at least 50% more associate’s degrees to be competitive
     – Colleges as economic engines
•   Fiscal realities
     – Higher education appropriations are decreasing portion of the
       state budget (from 17% ten years ago to 13% today).
     – Forecasts indicate state resources will be scarce for the
       foreseeable future. (aka “The “New Normal”)
     – Tuition rates increased 439% nationally over the last 25 years
       (National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education)
   Reaching Higher: Strategic Directions
                      for Indiana
• Collaborative process that recognized Indiana’s higher
  education institutions make up a system of
  independent parts
• Adopted June 8, 2007 – Outlined a set of aspirations
  and goals to ensure that Indiana has the system of
  higher education it needs and its citizens deserve.
Set ambitious but attainable goals for Indiana’s system of
  higher education with an aim towards both significantly
  improving opportunities for Hoosiers, and for raising
  Indiana’s system to the top of the pack

To thrive as a state and as individuals, all Hoosiers will
  need to achieve a depth and breadth of education
  never seen in the state’s history.
                 STRATEGIC GOALS
              Reaching Higher with Accountability

Again, working collaboratively with Indiana’s public
institutions and driven by Reaching Higher: the Indiana
Commission for Higher Education developed and
adopted Reaching Higher: Strategic Initiatives for
Higher Education in Indiana in six key areas.
The Commission tracks and publishes the State-Level
Dashboard of Key Indicators in these six key areas.

  Indiana will rank in the top ten states in each point of the
                  Education Pipeline by 2015.

   To compete nationally and internationally, Indiana must fix the
“leaky pipeline”—too many students are lost at each transition point.
   50% of Indiana high school graduates will earn a Core 40 with Honors diploma by 2015.

   Students who earn the Core 40 with Honors high school diploma are far less likely to require
remediation in college. Beginning in 2011, students will be required to have the Honors diploma to
           enter one of Indiana’s public flagship institutions and Ball State University.
Indiana’s 4-year regional campuses, IUPUI, University of Southern Indiana and Indiana State University will
            reduce the level of remediation provided to not more than 10% of students by 2015.

    Students who require remediation when they enter college are far less likely to complete.
    Remediation can be offered at a far lower cost to both the state and students at the 2-year
Indiana will produce the equivalent of 10,000 additional Hoosier Bachelor’s degrees per
                                  year through 2025.

60 percent of Hoosiers should have a postsecondary credential by 2025 to meet the “Big Goal” and
        compete and exceed the educational achievements of international competitors.
Indiana will rank in the top 10 states for on-time and 6-year total and minority graduation rates
   at public 4-year institutions, and 3-year graduation rates at community colleges, by 2015.
                                                  Indiana ranks 22nd

                                                                       Indiana ranks 28th.
      Indiana ranks 22nd.

                            Indiana ranks 32nd.
                                                                                             Indiana ranks 41st.

 Far too few students who start college complete within a reasonable time. Minority
       students complete at a significantly lower rate than the average student.
     Indiana’s adult enrollment will rank in the top 10 states by 2015


Nearly 1M adult Hoosiers are under-educated—more than ¼ of Indiana’s workforce.
     There are not enough “traditional” college students to meet the Big Goal.
Ivy Tech Community College and Vincennes University will increase the number of degrees and
       certificates earned and students transferred to 4-year institutions by 50% by 2015.

 Indiana values Associate Degrees and Certificates—and pays for them. Students who transfer
     from a 2-year to 4-year institution can complete a degree in a very cost-effective way.
   Indiana’s public institutions will rank as the most affordable among peer states by 2015.

Among peer states with similar family incomes, Indiana’s colleges are less affordable than
 average. To increase access and success, college must remain affordable for all Hoosiers.
    Indiana will improve 21st Century Scholar success at key transition points by 2015.
Indiana will rank in the top 10 states for low-income student college participation by 2015.

                                  While Indiana is
                                making headway in
                                promoting access to
                              college for low-income
                              populations, including
                                  the 21st Century
                               Scholars, low-income
                                   students do not
                                complete college at
                                rates comparable to
                               students from higher-
                                  income families.
  Indiana will rank as the most productive among Making Opportunity Affordable
                         Learning Year grant states by 2015.

For the foreseeable future, state resources will continue to be scarce. Indiana’s institutions must continue to
     improve completion rates, generating more credentialed citizens without significant new resources.
Based on work at Indiana’s Major Research Universities, Indiana will rank in the top
 half of all Midwestern states in Research and Development Expenditures by 2015.

   Each dollar of R&D expended by academic institutions in Indiana generates many more spent in local
economies, creates jobs, and advances innovation. While Indiana’s MRUs have expanded R&D expenditures
                         significantly, the state still lags behind Midwestern peers.
                 REACHING HIGHER
Indiana must ensure:
• Students are PREPARED to succeed in college
• Students can AFFORD college.
• Students COMPLETE college… and on-time

These realities are the foundation of Reaching Higher, the
  Commission for Higher Education’s strategic plan for Indiana’s
  postsecondary education system.
The Challenge:
• Too many students unprepared for college
    –   Annually, remediation costs U.S. colleges and
        universities $2B.
•   College admission requirements are
    increasing (Core 40, SAT/ACT, GPA, etc.)
The Response:
• Pushing rigorous math for high school seniors
• Expanding early opportunities for college-level experience (Dual
  Credit, AP)
• Defining what it means to be “college-ready”
• Improving remedial education
   – Accelerated coursework (8-week courses);
   – Basic skills embedded into academic and workforce credentials
   – Re-assessment of skills after first-tier remedial coursework—often
     students have overcome deficiencies
         The Challenge:
         • Indiana public college costs
           have increased by 200%
           this decade, and by 300%
           since 1990
         • Tuition outpacing income
           growth at an unsustainable
           rate over 6% increase
           annually this decade)
         • Half of Indiana’s students
           exit college with student
           loan debt

The Response:
• Setting tuition targets
• Delivering college more affordably (2+2,
  Passport, referral, etc.) (THINK SYSTEM)
• Driving college efficiency and cost-savings efforts
• Finding the “right fit”
             The Challenge:
             • Indiana graduation
               rates are far too
             • Students who don’t
               graduate are 10
               times more likely
               to default on
               college loans
The Response:
•   Creating college-going (and completing) culture (Learn More Indiana)

•   Performance-Based Budget that rewards colleges and universities for:
    • More Degrees
    • More On-Time Degrees
    • More Degrees to Low-Income Students
    • More Transfers
    • More Workforce Development (at the community colleges)
    • More Research (at the flagship research campuses)

                      BUDGET CUTS
Recently, $150M was cut from higher education budgets:
•   Tuition rates have been set—institutions will have to find
    savings through efficiencies and cutting costs
    • Encouraging back-office/administrative consolidation
    • Expanding joint purchasing agreements, particularly in
         areas of health insurance and energy
    • Sharing costs, particularly at co-located campuses
         (Richmond, Columbus)
    • Prioritizing and reallocating resources to high-demand
         academic programs critical to Indiana’s economy
